Drug Addiction Facts

  • "Bumping" is when an Ecstasy user takes more than one pill at a time.
  • High levels of Ecstasy in the blood stream can increase the risk of seizures and the ability of the heart to maintain its normal rhythms.
  • Prescription opioid pain medications such as Oxycontin and Vicodin can have effects similar to heroin, and statistics and studies indicate that abuse of these drugs may open the door to heroin abuse.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehabilitation to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
