Drug Addiction Facts

  • It is estimated that about 300 stroke cases involving young adults each year are associated with acute cocaine use.
  • Methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours, but only provides pain relief for up to 8 hours. Patients may need more pain relief before the drug is cleared from the body, and therefore administer another dose too soon resulting in toxic levels of the drug in the system which can lead to life-threatening changes in breathing and heart function.
  • Ritalin is actually more potent than cocaine in its effect on the areas of the brain which produce dopamine, the "reward" chemical that the brain produces.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in treatment require to experience a productive rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of substance abuse, it is important that they receive top quality care to halt the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and maybe put their future in jeopardy. Because adolescent substance abuse which persists often carries on into one's adult life, mothers and fathers must stay astute and get their adolescent treatment when a problem is noticed in a center which handles adolescent substance abuse. Many facilities which treat adolescents provide both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, which has been shown to be the most effective environments for rehabilitation clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many drug and alcohol rehab facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the issues 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 not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the possibility or ordered to rehabilitation as a term of their sentencing. Quite often, the offender can choose which rehab facility they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without getting penalized any further.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab due to a court ruling to fulfill part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehab requirements enforced with them as part of sentencing specifically of course when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.
