Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that the brains of Ecstasy users who experience serotonin depletion take a significant amount of time to restore the level of serotonin needed to perform important physiological and psychological functions.
  • Patients who require detox services due to concerns about withdrawal also benefit from inpatient programs, as detox services can be included as a part of inpatient treatment programs. After detox (if needed), patients undergo an intensive, daily drug/alcohol treatment regimen to learn about the addiction in a supportive, immersive environment.
  • Crystal meth is a more potent version of meth, and typically resembles small fragments of shiny white pebbles or rocks which can be smoked using glass pipes that are very similar to the pipes that are used to smoke crack cocaine.

With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehab center while receiving treatment services.

So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to decide on a rehab that is familiar with helping seniors and older adults tackle the distinctive life and drug abuse issues that these clients face which may include a broader spectrum of solutions including health care and the like.

Women

Women require quality treatment in rehab but might also need particular attention to the unique challenges they face for their gender. Males and females not only face different and distinctive problems in life as a consequence of gender, but also may abuse alcohol and drugs for unique reasons. drug treatment facilities which appeal to women and the distinctive and unique needs that women encounter often helps significantly on a women's path to permanent sobriety and a higher quality of life.

Men

Similar to how men and women encounter varying and different challenges in life that are specific to their gender, women and men could also face unique challenges in rehabilitation that are gender-specific, which is why a center designed specifically with these unique needs and obstacles in mind can be very helpful for someone seeking an effective rehab option.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment due to a court order to fulfill a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol treatment frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with alcohol and drug rehab requirements enforced with them in sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully graduating a drug treatment facility.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment programs have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind 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 costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from a number of drug rehab programs in order to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of treatment.
