Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in alcohol and drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment facilities have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are now very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in the U.S. there is someone struggling with substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require treatment in whatever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure their needs can be met properly when in treatment. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol rehabilitation the best experience possible for anyone. Simply look for a top quality drug rehabilitation facility and find out if it is feasible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to 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 limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
