Drug Addiction Facts

  • The rate of emergency department visits associated with non-medical use of fentanyl has increased significantly in recent years, from an estimated 15,947 in 2007 to an estimated 20,034 in 2011.
  • When fentanyl binds to opioid receptors this in turn elevates dopamine levels in the brain's reward areas, which then produces a state of euphoria and relaxation.
  • Overcoming meth addiction is often impossible without drug rehab, particularly because of severe physical and mental illnesses, including suicidal depression that results from meth use and meth withdrawal.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings and with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs and alcohol is a process which can be made far more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detoxification or drug rehab center. Sometimes detoxification isn't risk free, and even with the best of intentions individuals who go through detoxification independently in order to get sober might really be putting their own health and even their lives at risk. It is always far better to seek detoxification services in a professional program to prevent such risks and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment at a top quality drug and alcohol treatment program.

Methadone Detoxification

It isn't unusual for those who turn to methadone as a solution to heroin or prescription opioid dependence to find that they are now hooked on methadone. To get off of methadone can be extremely difficult, because withdrawal symptoms can be a whole lot worse than those that one experiences from heroin. Methadone detoxification can take place in a detoxification program however such symptoms can be made more manageable and so that there are less odds of relapse so the individual could very well be off of all drugs permanently.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who are in need of drug abuse rehab will very often need solutions beyond what a traditional drug and alcohol rehab facility will be able to deliver. Due to the fact comprehensive medical services tend to be a key part of the physical process of recovery for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who more than likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease because of their addiction, it is vital that these clients obtain the health care needed together with any rehabilitation services for their drug abuse issue.

Pregnant/Postpartum Women

Pregnant and postpartum women don't just require assistance from a quality rehab for their own health and wellbeing but also for the wellbeing of their unborn baby or the child they have delivered who has to be properly looked after as they become rehabilitated and in turn capable of being a much better mother. Rehabilitation opportunities exist which give them and their child the appropriate healthcare services whilst making certain they receive the rehab they require to become sober and be able to remain this way in order to be the very best mother they can be.

Women

Women have to have quality rehab in rehab but may also need particular attention to the distinctive issues they face because of gender. Women and men not only face different and distinctive challenges in everyday life as a consequence of gender, but also may abuse alcohol and drugs for completely different reasons. drug treatment centers which appeal to women and the specific and unique needs that women encounter often helps significantly on the women's road to long term sobriety and a higher standard of living.

Men

Similar to how men and women face varying and unique challenges in everyday life which are specific to their gender, women and men may also encounter distinctive challenges in rehabilitation that are gender-specific, which is why a rehab designed specifically with these unique needs and challenges in mind can be quite helpful for someone seeking an effective rehabilitation solution.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of choice.
