Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • People in clubs who abuse codeine cough syrup normally mix their syrup with soft drinks or cocktails, while polydrug users mostly drink their syrup undiluted.
  • Some inpatient programs offer additional services, like meditation, animal therapy, gourmet cooking, crafts or community service.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a process which can be made much more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detoxification or drug and alcohol treatment program. Often detoxification isn't risk free, and even with the best of intentions individuals who proceed through detoxification on their own in order to get sober could really be putting their own health and even their lives at risk. It is usually best to seek detoxification solutions inside a professional facility in order to avoid such risks and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment at a top quality alcohol and drug treatment program.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they need in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
