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.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a treatment facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

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 forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.
