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 treatment lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.


Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

Pregnant/Postpartum Women

Pregnant and postpartum women not only require help from a quality treatment for their own health and wellbeing but also for the wellbeing of the unborn baby or the child they've given birth to who must be appropriately cared for as they become rehabilitated and in turn capable of being a better mother. Rehab opportunities exist that provide them in addition to their child with sufficient healthcare services while ensuring they receive the rehab they might require to become abstinent and be able to stay that way in order to be the very best mother they can be.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment due to a court ruling to satisfy part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehab specifications enforced with them as part of sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing a drug and alcohol treatment facility.


Not all drug treatment facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study info and the like are now very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in the U.S. there is someone struggling with drug use that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may need treatment in whichever language it is they are fluent in to ensure that their needs can be met properly during rehabilitation. Luckily, there are many drug rehab centers who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehab the best experience possible for anyone. Simply locate a top quality drug treatment program and find out if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.


Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, 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 facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment centers provide payment assistance to help individuals who might not have adequate money to self pay for rehab or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for their stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term program when in fact a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate option. To see what payment assistance can be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, consult the facility for details.
