Drug Addiction Facts

  • 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.
  • People in clubs who abuse codeine cough syrup normally mix their syrup with soft drinks or cocktails, while polydrug users mostly drink their syrup undiluted.
  • Some inpatient programs offer additional services, like meditation, animal therapy, gourmet cooking, crafts or community service.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of 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 abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug and alcohol rehab centers who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Spanish

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

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered 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 kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.
