Drug Addiction Facts

  • A new heroin user typically ingests up to 20 mg. of heroin to get high, but an individual who is heavily dependent on heroin may require several hundred mg. of the drug per day.
  • Inpatient programs are safe, structured environments in which individuals are removed from stressful situations that promote or fuel the urge to use drugs or alcohol.
  • Because of the fact that prescription stimulants can give a boost of energy and alertness due to the amphetamines contained in these drugs, many teenagers and young adults are abusing prescription stimulants to boost their study performance.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being included in many insurance companies, you don't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it might not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents become involved in any type of drug use, it is vital that they obtain quality care to stop the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and perhaps put their future in jeopardy. Because adolescent drug abuse which persists often continues into one's adult life, parents must remain astute and get their adolescent rehabilitation as soon as a problem is observed in a center which addresses adolescent drug abuse. A lot of facilities which treat adolescents provide both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, that has been proven to be the very best environments for rehabilitation clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug treatment programs who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face so that they can not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. In many cases, the offender can select which rehab program they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of reduced sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation due to a court ruling to meet a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehabilitation often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehab specifications enforced on them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully graduating an alcohol and drug treatment center.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab programs have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are actually very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with 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 cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.
