Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehab need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it is often referred to as, is a kind of drug rehabilitation center meant for individuals who need and require a comprehensive and organized rehab strategy and environment yet don't require around the clock care. It can help make men and women in rehabilitation continue to be supported throughout the [[[rehab course of action without interfering with other activities they may need to sustain while in rehabilitation. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an option for those who have completely finished an inpatient or residential facility and want help with the smooth transition back into an average drug free lifestyle.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program which is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are 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 can be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
