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.
  • Some studies suggest that a marijuana user's risk of heart attack during the first hour after having smoked the drug is four times his or her usual risk.

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.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
