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.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as a term of their sentencing. Often times, the offender can decide which rehab center they would like to go to. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of reduced sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without getting penalized any further.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab programs have the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study information and stuff like that are actually frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.
