Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methamphetamine was a factor in 5.6% of substance abuse treatment admissions in 2011.
  • When someone uses marijuana their heart rate, which would normally be about70 to 80 beats per minute, may increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute or even double that.
  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.


Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. While this might seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehab require to have a productive rehab.

Pregnant/Postpartum Women

Pregnant and postpartum women don't just need help from a high quality treatment for their own health and wellbeing but in addition for the wellbeing of their unborn child or the child they've delivered who must be appropriately taken care of as they become rehabbed and in turn capable of being a much better mother. Treatment opportunities exist which offer them in addition to their child with sufficient healthcare services whilst ensuring they receive the rehabilitation they might need to become sober and be able to remain that way to become the best parent they can be.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehabilitation as part of a court ruling to fulfill a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with alcohol and drug rehab requirements enforced with them as part of sentencing especially of course when successfully completing a drug rehabilitation center.


Not all drug rehab facilities have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study info and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Other Languages

In every city in America there is someone fighting substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehabilitation in whatever language it is they are fluent in so that their needs may be catered to properly while in rehab. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment facilities who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol treatment the very best experience possible for anyone. Simply find a quality alcohol and drug treatment center and find out if it is feasible to receive rehabilitation in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.


Some rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation facilities offer payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have sufficient resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or total coverage for their stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term center when in fact a long-term center is going to be the more appropriate selection. To determine what payment assistance may be offered, say for example a sliding fee scale, check with the program for details.
