Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
  • Intramuscular heroin injection produces a slightly slower onset of heroin's euphoric feeling, taking approximately 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Fentanyl patches can also be abused by freezing the contents, cutting this into pieces and placing it under the tongue or in the cheek cavity for oral absorption.

Self Payment

In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

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 which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers.
