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.
  • A chronic heroin user can often begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within hours of the last administration of the drug.
  • Although inpatient treatment can take place in a hospital setting, for the most part a residential setting is typical, offering 24-hour care and surveillance. The most common form of treatment is a therapeutic community, involving the other patients and staff, focusing on helping the person understand the sources and conditions that lead to substance abuse.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehabilitation as part of a court order to fulfill a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug rehabilitation requirements enforced on them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

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 detection of the problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in drug rehab.

Other Languages

In every single city in America there is someone fighting drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might require rehabilitation in whatever language it is they are fluent in so that their needs may be met properly while in treatment. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug treatment the very best experience possible for anyone. Simply find a top quality drug and alcohol rehab program and find out if it is possible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

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

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug and alcohol rehab facilities in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
