Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that people who are drug dependent are much more likely than the general population to drink alcohol.
  • Crack cocaine can be purchased in small amounts that are enough for two smoke sessions for an average of $5 to $15, and may be as much as 90 percent pure which is up to six times stronger than powder cocaine that is normally purchased on the street.
  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug use may have distinctive obstacles they must overcome when in rehabilitation, which rehab specialists within the center they decide to take part in have to be keen of to ensure that a full recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to pick a center that's used to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug use issues that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of solutions including health care and so on.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study info and so on are now very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.
