Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Snorting cocaine can result in a chronically runny nose, nosebleeds, loss of smell, hoarseness, and problems swallowing.
  • As cocaine passes from the importer to the user, it is typically diluted or "cut" at each stage of distribution to increase each dealer's profit. The user never typically knows how pure the product they are using is.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings with various treatment lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a treatment facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehab need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents become involved in any sort of substance abuse, it is essential that they acquire quality care to stop the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and perhaps jeopardize their future. Because adolescent substance abuse which continues often continues into one's adult life, mothers and fathers must remain astute and get their adolescent rehab the moment an issue is observed in a center which addresses adolescent drug abuse. Several facilities which treat adolescents supply both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, that has been proven to be the perfect environments for treatment clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug treatment facilities that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to be able to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment facility which is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for treatment might be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment programs offer payment assistance to help clients who may not have sufficient resources to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. As an example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term center when in reality a long-term facility will probably be the more ideal selection. To see what payment assistance may be offered, say for example a sliding fee scale, consult the facility for particulars.
