Drug Addiction Facts

  • The risk for stroke associated with cocaine use is much higher than with other stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking due to the fact that cocaine use can result in the constriction of blood vessels, increased heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, and decreased oxygen supply to the brain.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
  • There are some people who can not quit cold turkey, and that is why the patient will be regularly monitored and given suitable medication if needed, according to the withdrawal of the person.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. Although this might seem perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than a lot of people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and meet with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.
