Drug Addiction Facts

  • The Food and Drug Administration now requires the manufactures of prescription stimulants to warn users of the cardiovascular problems that could be associated with the use of these types of medications.
  • Animal studies indicate that animals will work more persistently at pressing a bar for cocaine than for any other drug, including opiates. In one example, one monkey test subject pressed the bar 12,800 times until it got a single dose of cocaine. If the animal survives in such studies, it will return to the task of obtaining more cocaine.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not merely become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with drug abuse could possibly have distinctive challenges they have to conquer whilst in rehabilitation, which treatment specialists in the rehab they decide to take part in should be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to select a rehab that's acquainted with helping seniors and older adults tackle the distinctive life and drug abuse issues that these clients face which might include a broader spectrum of services including health care and the like.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab facilities possess the staff or resources to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are now frequently available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too nationwide.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there's someone struggling with substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might require rehab in whichever language it is that they are fluent in so that their needs can be met properly whilst in rehab. Luckily, there are many drug treatment centers that have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol rehabilitation the most effective experience possible for anyone. Simply find a top quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility and find out if it is possible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered 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 restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
