Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient drug/alcohol programs, sometimes are extended for patients who are receiving some benefit from the program but have not yet made enough progress to leave the rehab facility.
  • Individuals with alcoholism or who abuse alcohol are less likely to be tested for HIV and to seek treatment, and are less compliant with treatment regimens than those without alcohol use disorders.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with substance abuse could possibly have unique obstacles they must overcome during rehabilitation, which rehabilitation specialists within the center they opt to be a part of have to be keen of to ensure a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to select a rehab that is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and substance abuse problems that these clients face which may include a broader spectrum of solutions including health care and the like.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.
