Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research has shown that marijuana can produce a range of transient psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits, such as deficits in learning, short-term memory, working memory, executive function, abstract ability, decision-making and attention.
  • When drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed in routine pediatric doses, they commonly cause hypertension, which can lead to an enlarged heart.
  • Some studies suggest that a marijuana user's risk of heart attack during the first hour after having smoked the drug is four times his or her usual risk.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with substance abuse might have distinctive challenges they have to conquer while in treatment, which treatment professionals within the rehab they decide to be a part of have to be keen of to ensure a complete recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to choose a facility which is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults handle the unique life and drug use issues that these clients face which can include a wider spectrum of services including health care and so on.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment centers have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more centers that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study information and the like are now very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.
