Drug Addiction Facts

  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The 5 and 10 mg strength methadone tablets are the only formulations approved by FDA for use in pain management and other formulations, including dispersible tablets, have been prescribed for pain control.
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.
