Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in treatment to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol treatment centers who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
