Drug Addiction Facts

  • An individual who uses any type of meth can either smoke or inject the drug and experience an intense euphoric sensation that is usually followed by a high that can last for 12 hours or more.
  • Prescription stimulants are commonly abused because of how easily they are accessed, and can be obtained easily through friends and family, direct prescriptions from a physician, or a prescription "drug dealer." However, the most common source of prescription stimulants is the medicine cabinets of the individual's friends and family.
  • When a codeine user is severely dependent to the drug, withdrawal effects can last for many months after the user has stopped taking it. This can happen through both legitimate and illicit use.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a process which can be made much more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detox or alcohol and drug treatment facility. Often detoxification isn't risk free, and even with the best of intentions people who go through detoxification by themselves so that they can get sober could actually be putting their health or even their lives at risk. It is always best to seek out detoxification services inside a professional program to avoid such dangers and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment at a quality drug rehab program.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in treatment to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab centers that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Other Languages

In every city in the U.S. there's someone experiencing substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might need rehab in whatever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure that their needs may be catered to properly when in rehabilitation. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehab facilities who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehabilitation the very best experience possible for anyone. Simply look for a quality drug rehabilitation facility and find out if it is possible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehabilitation facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from numerous drug and alcohol treatment facilities in an effort to help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
