Drug Addiction Facts

  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.
  • Inpatient drug rehabilitation can help people suffering from moderate to severe drug addiction. Patients typically have a long history of drug abuse.
  • Studies indicate that adolescent marijuana use and early use of other illicit drugs make an individual more likely to continue using marijuana in their mid-30s or beyond.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. While this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehab need to have a productive rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. In many cases, the offender can select which treatment facility they would like to enroll in. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options so that they can progress in their lives without having to be penalized any more.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by a number of drug and alcohol treatment centers in order to help clients afford treatment where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
