Drug Addiction Facts

  • An estimated 1.1 million Americans used Ecstasy for the first time in 2009, which is a significant increase from the 894,000 first-time users reported in 2008.
  • Ecstasy is not a "fun" party drug which is as benign as some would think, and often results in the same physical effects as other stimulants, such as cocaine and amphetamines including increases in heart rate and blood pressure.
  • A recent study regarding the placebo effect in children whose parents and teachers were told they had been put on the ADHD drug Adderall, which in fact was a placebo pill, found that many cases diagnosed as ADHD may only be in the mind, for both the children diagnosed with the disorder and their parents and teachers.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. While this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than lots of people in treatment need to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the help they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study data and the like are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.
