Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient drug/alcohol programs, sometimes are extended for patients who are receiving some benefit from the program but have not yet made enough progress to leave the rehab facility.
  • Individuals with alcoholism or who abuse alcohol are less likely to be tested for HIV and to seek treatment, and are less compliant with treatment regimens than those without alcohol use disorders.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution due to the fact one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab facilities that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the possibility or ordered to rehab as part of sentencing. In many cases, the offender can decide which treatment program they would like to attend. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to enable them to progress in their lives without getting penalized any more.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab as part of a court ruling in order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehabilitation specifications enforced on them in sentencing and also of course when successfully graduating an alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more centers that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study data and stuff like that are now frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by many different drug rehabilitation centers to help help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for treatment may be different and another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
