Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug and alcohol treatment programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.
