Drug Addiction Facts

  • During the first half of 2013, 93 Cuyahoga County residents in Minnesota died as a result of heroin use.
  • A recent study regarding the placebo effect in children whose parents and teachers were told they had been put on the ADHD drug Adderall, which in fact was a placebo pill, found that many cases diagnosed as ADHD may only be in the mind, for both the children diagnosed with the disorder and their parents and teachers.
  • Older adults who drink have an increased sensitivity to alcohol due to the fact that aging can lower the body's tolerance for alcohol, and therefore experience the effects of alcohol more readily than when they were younger.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, because the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while receiving rehab services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than many people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders while in rehab to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehab centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and so on are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in America there is someone experiencing drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might need rehab in whichever language it is they are fluent in to ensure that their needs can be catered to properly during treatment. Luckily, there are lots of drug treatment facilities which have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make alcohol and drug rehabilitation the best experience possible for any individual. Simply discover a quality drug rehab facility and inquire if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and speak with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by many different alcohol and drug rehab centers to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For example, one client's price for rehab may be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
