Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research has shown that marijuana can produce a range of transient psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits, such as deficits in learning, short-term memory, working memory, executive function, abstract ability, decision-making and attention.
  • When drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed in routine pediatric doses, they commonly cause hypertension, which can lead to an enlarged heart.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study info and stuff like that are actually frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Other Languages

In every city in America there is someone fighting substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehab in whichever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure that their needs can be catered to properly during rehabilitation. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehab the most effective experience possible for anyone. Simply locate a quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation center and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehab facilities which deliver 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 establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind 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 may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.
