Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research has shown that marijuana can produce a range of transient psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits, such as deficits in learning, short-term memory, working memory, executive function, abstract ability, decision-making and attention.
  • When drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed in routine pediatric doses, they commonly cause hypertension, which can lead to an enlarged heart.
  • Some studies suggest that a marijuana user's risk of heart attack during the first hour after having smoked the drug is four times his or her usual risk.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study info and stuff like that are actually frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.
