Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy users can become dehydrated through vigorous activity in a hot environment, and experience dangerous overheating coupled with the fact that Ecstasy can interfere with the body's ability to regulate its temperature. This can cause a dangerous condition called hyperthermia.
  • An estimated 1.1 million Americans used Ecstasy for the first time in 2009, which is a significant increase from the 894,000 first-time users reported in 2008.
  • 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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who must be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehab process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the support they require in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
