Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy is occasionally taken in conjunction with psychedelic drugs, such as LSD which is known as "candy flipping". Taking Ecstasy in combination with Ketamine is called "kitty flipping".
  • Research shows that the driving skills of someone under the influence of marijuana are impaired for at least 4-6 hours after smoking a single marijuana cigarette, long after the "high" is gone.
  • One of the more serious psychological side effects of stimulant drugs, particularly when abused, is the possibility of amphetamine induced psychosis. This type of psychosis can also occur at therapeutic doses as a result of long-term use of the drug. Individuals who experience this type of psychosis will exhibit paranoia, hallucinations and delusions. It is estimated that anywhere from 5 to 15% of users fail to recover completely.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery have to have to have a successful 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 and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
