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.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, there's no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term rehabilitation, which lasts for more than four weeks, is an option that delivers the commensurate level of care and suitable environment for anybody struggling with a life threatening addiction and dependency issue. Because people will stay in the residential long-term rehab facility for about 120 days and even longer occasionally, these types of programs offer all of the amenities needed to make a client's remain as relaxed and amenable as possible while also providing high quality treatment to help them conquer their addiction for good.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Men

Just as women and men encounter varying and different challenges in daily life which are specific to their gender, women and men might also encounter distinctive challenges in rehab which are gender-specific, and that's why a facility designed specifically with these special needs and challenges at heart can be very helpful for someone looking for an effective rehab option.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab due to a court ruling to satisfy a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehab requirements enforced on them in sentencing specifically of course when successfully graduating a drug rehabilitation center.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and also other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary 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 cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through 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 treatment 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 whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
