Drug Addiction Facts

  • Snorting or oral ingesting meth produces euphoria but not an intense rush such as that which is experienced through smoking or injecting the drug.
  • The increase in serotonin caused by Ecstasy which produces a high also results in a low because the drug also interferes with its synthesis which leads to a considerable depletion of serotonin. As a result, it takes the human brain a significant amount of time to rebuild the store of serotonin needed to perform important physiological and psychological functions.
  • All sorts of different drugs can be abused, including illegal drugs (such as heroin or cannabis), prescription medicines (such as tranquilizers or painkillers), and other medicines that can be bought off the supermarket shelf.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in recovery require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with substance abuse might have distinctive obstacles they must conquer when in rehabilitation, which rehab professionals in the center they decide to take part in must be keen of in order that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to select a program that is used to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and substance abuse problems that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of solutions including medical care and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and consult with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
