Drug Addiction Facts

  • When Fentanyl is administered it rapidly crosses the blood-brain barrier, and when this occurs it produced not only pain relief but also produces sedation and varying levels of respiratory depression, as well as nausea, and vomiting in some cases.
  • The increase in serotonin caused by Ecstasy which produces a high also results in a low because the drug also interferes with its synthesis which leads to a considerable depletion of serotonin. As a result, it takes the human brain a significant amount of time to rebuild the store of serotonin needed to perform important physiological and psychological functions.
  • Alcohol can damage the cells lining the stomach and intestines, blocking the absorption and breakdown of nutrients in those organs.

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 drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of alcohol and drug treatment facilities that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
