Drug Addiction Facts

  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • More than half a million visits to hospital emergency rooms a year are drug-related.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore 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 alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if 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 covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are covered 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 concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.
