Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehab procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehab centers that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face to enable them to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with drug abuse could have unique obstacles they have to conquer whilst in treatment, which rehab professionals in the facility they opt to be a part of have to be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to select a program that is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults handle the unique life and drug abuse issues that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and so on.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation as part of a court order to fulfill part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug treatment often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with alcohol and drug treatment specifications enforced with them as part of sentencing specifically naturally when successfully completing a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

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 rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of choice.
