Drug Addiction Facts

  • 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.
  • The 5 and 10 mg strength methadone tablets are the only formulations approved by FDA for use in pain management and other formulations, including dispersible tablets, have been prescribed for pain control.
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehab facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Other than ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the support they need in drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment centers possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study data and the like are now very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and speak with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.
