Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that people who are dependent on alcohol are significantly more likely than the general population to use drugs.
  • A new heroin user typically ingests up to 20 mg. of heroin to get high, but an individual who is heavily dependent on heroin may require several hundred mg. of the drug per day.
  • Opioid overdose deaths have increased four-fold in the past decade, and methadone now accounts for nearly a third of opioid of these deaths.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab center which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation might be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider other factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
