Drug Addiction Facts

  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • More than half a million visits to hospital emergency rooms a year are drug-related.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
