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.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.
