Drug Addiction Facts

  • In US Federal courts during 2007, 5,477 individuals were convicted of crack cocaine-related crimes, 95% of which were involved in crack cocaine trafficking.
  • Prescription stimulants can increase blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature, and when used at high doses can cause serious cardiovascular complications, including stroke.
  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while receiving rehab services. Even if this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more centers that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are now very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse treatment 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 in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.
