Drug Addiction Facts

  • In 2012 the average age of new meth users was approximately 20 years old.
  • The increase in serotonin caused by Ecstasy which produces a high also results in a low because the drug also interferes with its synthesis which leads to a considerable depletion of serotonin. As a result, it takes the human brain a significant amount of time to rebuild the store of serotonin needed to perform important physiological and psychological functions.
  • Meth is most often abused for days on end known as a "binge", whereby users often forego sleep and food to use meth.

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered.
