Drug Addiction Facts

  • The effects of marijuana when it is smoked can last up to a few hours, and when consumed in foods or beverages are often latent, but these effects may last a bit longer than when it is smoked.
  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • The majority of primary methamphetamine admissions to substance abuse treatment facilities in 2011 were male (53 percent).

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. While this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution due to the fact one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehab facilities that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
