Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Snorting cocaine can result in a chronically runny nose, nosebleeds, loss of smell, hoarseness, and problems swallowing.
  • As cocaine passes from the importer to the user, it is typically diluted or "cut" at each stage of distribution to increase each dealer's profit. The user never typically knows how pure the product they are using is.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment centers have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study data and the like are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there is someone struggling with substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might need rehab in whichever language it is they are fluent in to ensure that their needs may be met properly while in treatment. Luckily, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers who have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehabilitation the very best experience possible for any individual. Simply find a top quality drug treatment center and inquire if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility available from numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in order to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for treatment may be different and another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration additional factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
