Drug Addiction Facts

  • Although most of the meth available in the U.S. comes from foreign or domestic super labs, it can also be easily produced in makeshift, illegal laboratories in significant batches for sales and personal use.
  • Animal studies indicate that animals will work more persistently at pressing a bar for cocaine than for any other drug, including opiates. In one example, one monkey test subject pressed the bar 12,800 times until it got a single dose of cocaine. If the animal survives in such studies, it will return to the task of obtaining more cocaine.
  • A study of gay males in San Francisco concluded that 15% of men who had sex with men had used methamphetamine during their most recent anal sex (within the past 3 months).

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from many different drug and alcohol rehab centers in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and less than somebody else whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional circumstances aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug treatment centers offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have adequate money to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term center when in reality a long-term facility is going to be the more ideal option. To find out what payment assistance might be offered, like a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the center for particulars.
