However, the most common source of prescription stimulants is the medicine cabinets of the individual's friends and family.
  • Risk of contracting hepatitis C (HCV) among injecting cocaine users begins with the first injection, and within 2 years, nearly 40 percent of injection drug users are exposed to HCV.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance companies, there's no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Halfway House

A halfway house is a place which allows for an easy transition when someone is newly sober independently or has completed an alcohol and drug treatment facility and needs help re-acclimating into a regular lifestyle. Residing in a halfway house, or sober living facility as it is sometimes called, is part of sentencing if someone is found guilty of drug charges also. If help is needed finding a halfway house, speak to a drug and alcohol rehab program and consult with a treatment specialist who will be able to point you in the right direction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery require to have a productive rehab.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term treatment for 30 days or less is a possibility which permits people in rehab to have the much required change of environment needed to have a chance at staying abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehabilitation for 30 days or less may not be prolonged enough for particular individuals with more extreme addiction and dependency problems, and this should at all times be evaluated after the 30 days to establish if more intensive rehab is needed.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term rehab, which lasts for more than 1 month, can be an option that provides the commensurate intensity of care and suitable environment for anybody fighting a life threatening addiction and dependency issue. Because people will stay in the residential long-term treatment center for approximately 120 days and even longer in some cases, these types of facilities offer all of the amenities needed to make a client's stay as relaxed and amenable as it could possibly be while also delivering high quality treatment to assist them to overcome their habit once and for all.

Adolescents

When adolescents become involved in any type of substance abuse, it is vital that they obtain high quality care to stop the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and maybe jeopardize their future. Because adolescent drug use which persists often carries on into one's adult life, parents must continue to be vigilant and get their adolescent treatment as soon as a problem is observed in a program which handles adolescent drug use. Many facilities which deal with adolescents supply both inpatient and residential rehab, which has been proven to be the most beneficial environments for rehab clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug treatment facilities that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
