Drug Addiction Facts

  • As cocaine passes from the importer to the user, it is typically diluted or "cut" at each stage of distribution to increase each dealer's profit. The user never typically knows how pure the product they are using is.
  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. While this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab programs have the staff or resources to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study info and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too around the country.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there's someone fighting drug use that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehabilitation in whatever language it is they are fluent in to ensure their needs can be met properly when in rehabilitation. Thankfully, there are many drug rehabilitation facilities who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make alcohol and drug treatment the very best experience possible for anyone. Simply locate a top quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility and find out if it is feasible to receive rehabilitation in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from a number of drug and alcohol rehab centers in an effort to help clients afford rehab where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
