Drug Addiction Facts

  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The 5 and 10 mg strength methadone tablets are the only formulations approved by FDA for use in pain management and other formulations, including dispersible tablets, have been prescribed for pain control.
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders while in rehab in order to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab due to a court order to satisfy part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug treatment requirements enforced on them in sentencing and also of course when successfully completing a drug rehab center.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab facilities possess the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and so on are actually frequently available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center that is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
