Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • People in clubs who abuse codeine cough syrup normally mix their syrup with soft drinks or cocktails, while polydrug users mostly drink their syrup undiluted.
  • Some inpatient programs offer additional services, like meditation, animal therapy, gourmet cooking, crafts or community service.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can select which treatment program they would like to enroll in. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to be able to move forward in their lives without having to be penalized any more.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study information and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

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 aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
