Methadone Treatment Programs

Methadone doses are given to people that are addicted to heroin and other opioids as a method of treatment called "Harm Reduction Treatment" Methadone is a long lasting synthetic opiate that does prevent symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. It is important to note that methadone itself is an addictive opiate narcotic that is dispensed primarily at outpatient clinics. Although some people do show improvement through methadone maintenance, many continue to use addictive drugs and perpetuate negative behaviors and consequences associated with the illicit use of heroin and other opiates which includes: intravenous drug use, risk of drug overdose, spreading infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis, and drug related crime. It is true that some methadone maintenence programs have shown to reduce the "harm" associated with opiate addiction however this does not constitute a full recovery. Full drug addiction recovery is achieved by attending a comprehensive drug treatment program that focuses on complete abstinence rather than partial harm reduction or drug substitution. A methadone treatment program would not be a logical initial option but may be considered as a final option or last resort as methadone itself is a very powerful and addictive drug.

Methadone Detox

Methadone detox provides opioid dependent patients with medication, health, social, and rehabilitation services that relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduce physiological cravings, and allow normalization of the body's functions. Methadone detoxification has been available for over 30 years and has been confirmed to reduce the harm associated with opioid dependence in numerous scientific studies.

Methadone is used to help people trying to get off heroin and other drugs. Unfortunately, methadone is also an addictive opoid narcotic. Going through methadone detoxification can be more difficult than getting off other opioids.

When you are ready to get help with your methadone addiction, look to a methadone detoxification center for help. Methadone detoxification can be very difficult on the person going through withdrawal. The dosage needs to be lowered slowly, and this process needs to be supervised by experienced medical personnel. When you are considering different methadone detoxification programs, ask about the center's experience with methadone users. You will also want to get some idea about the daily schedule, as well as how the staff will give you the support you need to get off methadone.

A very important factor in the chances of avoiding a relapse is to immediately begin participation with a comprehensive drug rehabilitation program in order to continue the methadone detoxification and recovery process. Many rehab programs will recommend that once graduates complete drug rehab, they enter a sober living home in order to continue the process of maintaining their sobriety while re-entering everyday life.

Drug Treatment Centers For Pregnant Women

Alcohol and drug abuse among women who are pregnant is a terrifying concern due to the irreversible damage that can be brought upon their unborn child if the mother is using drugs or alcohol while pregnant. A 2009 report estimated that about 4 percent of women that were seeking treatment for drug or alcohol abuse related problems admitted that they were abusing substances while they were pregnant. Additionally, women who drank alcohol during their pregnancy were also much more likely to consume illegal drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin.

Studies have demonstrated that women who are pregnant and involved in drug or alcohol abuse will tend to avoid revealing their condition and seek treatment due to their fear of repercussions that may take place against them and their children.

It is of vital importance that if you are pregnant and have a drug or alcohol abuse problem to seek help for your own sake and for the sake of your baby.

Drug Rehab Centers That Accept Medicaid

Getting treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism is important to everyone. If you can't afford to pay for a drug rehab center right now, Medicaid can make it possible for you to get the care that you need so that you can rehabilitate successfully and recover from addiction.

Medicaid is available only to certain low-income individuals and families who fit into an eligibility group that is recognized by federal and state law. Medicaid does not pay money to you; instead, it sends payments directly to the drug rehab center. Depending on state's rules in New York, you may also be asked to pay a small part of the cost (co-payment) for some addiction treatment services.

Many groups of people are covered by Medicaid. Even within these groups, though, certain requirements must be met. These may include your age, whether you are pregnant, disabled, blind, or aged; your income and resources (like bank accounts, real property, or other items that can be sold for cash); and whether you are a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant. The rules for counting your income and resources vary from state to state and from group to group.

Your child may be eligible for coverage if he or she is a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant, even if you are not (however, there is a 5-year limit that applies to lawful permanent residents). Eligibility for children is based on the child's status, not the parent's. Also, if someone else's child lives with you, the child may be eligible even if you are not because your income and resources will not count for the child.

In general, you should apply for Medicaid if your income is low and you match one of the descriptions of the Eligibility Groups. (Even if you are not sure whether you qualify, if you or someone in your family needs drug treatment or any other health care and you cannot afford it, you should apply for Medicaid and have a qualified New York caseworker evaluate your situation.)

Drug Treatment Programs That Accept Private Health Insurance

The cost of drug treatment programs for drug addiction and alcoholism treatment are increasing. Both outpatient drug treatment programs and residential drug rehab programs come at a cost that most people who are caught in the grips of drug or alcohol addiction cannot afford. Most private insurance policies provide for at least a percentage of coverage for substance abuse treatment.

It is a sad fact that, even though a drug treatment program takes insurance, many who need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse are statistically less likely to have any medical insurance coverage at all. It is estimated that 15 percent of adults over the age of 18 have no coverage at all and that 30 percent rely solely upon government and federally funded health coverage services like Medicaid and Medicare. Surveys show that approximately 31 percent of people who felt they needed treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism could not enroll in a drug rehab program due to lack of finance and insurance coverage.

Self Pay Drug Treatment Programs

When you or a loved one is overwhelmed by alcohol and drug abuse, we know that you want help fast. You're in an emotional tailspin, and need people and a place you can trust. You want assurance that the program you choose will offer the best chance of success. You want compassionate experts and a hassle-free process to help make one of the hardest decisions of your life a whole lot easier.

Self pay drug treatment programs offer a viable alternative to private medical insurance and are becoming increasingly popular. Having the choice of self pay drug treatment programs gives the individual the opportunity to pay the treatment costs in full. This does not necessarily mean that financial assistance is not offered; simply that self pay is an acceptable payment method. To find out more about self pay drug treatment program options please contact them directly. Also, don't hesitate to request information from more than one facility.

Drug addiction and abuse is one of the major concerns in the United States and other countries. Self pay drug treatment programs are crucial for those with drug abuse problems, to educate them about the facts about chemical dependency and help them make important changes in their lives to lead a drug free lifestyle. Drug treatment typically involves counseling and behavioral therapy coupled with group therapy, lectures and group discussions, to help those in recovery cope with their addiction. The success rates of self pay drug treatment programs are pretty high and most individuals attending self pay drug treatment programs are able to attain and maintain prolonged abstinence from drugs.

Drug Rehab Centers With Sliding Scale Fees

Drug rehab centers that offer sliding scale fees are variable costs for treatment services, or taxes based on one's ability to pay for addiction treatment. Such fees are thereby reduced for those who have lower incomes or less money to spare after their personal expenses. Regardless of income, every person should be able to obtain treatment.

Drug rehab centers may have various motivations for offering their services at a sliding scale. These may include the desire to be charitable to those less able to afford addiction treatment, their ability to get a tax deduction for offering their services as charity, or their ability to benefit from the revenue even from a partial payment. Some drug rehab centers may have their profits that would have been obtained from a full-price sale subsidized by some other means. These may include charging a higher cost to a wealthier client, obtaining grants from government agencies or non-profit organizations, or obtaining a tax deduction.

Whatever the motivation the sliding scale payment method makes it less difficult to obtain addiction treatment, for those with lower income.

Drug Rehab Centers With Payment Assistance

The growing costs of drug rehabilitation is staggering. Surveys show that many individuals who need treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism aren't getting it due to the costs involved with drug rehabilitation and counseling. For that reason, many never even step foot into a drug rehab center even though there are a number of options available for payment assistance. For some, it is difficult to admit that they require financial assistance when it comes to seeking treatment for addiction. However, many drug rehab centers even some private rehabs offer payment assistance to those who are struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism. Most drug rehabilitation organizations will request that those seeking financial assistance or reduced payments investigate all avenues before providing payment assistance. Typically, when all other avenues have been exhausted, consideration for payment assistance will be made.
