Drug Addiction Facts

  • 24% of patients involved in inpatient treatment are forced out of the program due to legal issues, incarceration, and termination of treatment.
  • Over a period of time, heroin users find themselves needing increasingly larger doses of the drug to achieve the same effect that they experienced the first time that they used it because of increased tolerance.
  • Heroin purchased at street level is very rarely pure, and the average bag of heroin sometimes has less than 5% of pure heroin.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while receiving treatment services. Although this may appear perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery require to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution due to the fact one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol treatment facilities who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not simply become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab as part of a court order in order to meet a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug treatment requirements enforced on them as part of sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully graduating an alcohol and drug treatment center.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
