Drug Addiction Facts

  • The risk for stroke associated with cocaine use is much higher than with other stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking due to the fact that cocaine use can result in the constriction of blood vessels, increased heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, and decreased oxygen supply to the brain.
  • A chronic heroin user can often begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within hours of the last administration of the drug.
  • Although inpatient treatment can take place in a hospital setting, for the most part a residential setting is typical, offering 24-hour care and surveillance. The most common form of treatment is a therapeutic community, involving the other patients and staff, focusing on helping the person understand the sources and conditions that lead to substance abuse.

Outpatient

Outpatient services 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 several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.
