Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ritalin is actually more potent than cocaine in its effect on the areas of the brain which produce dopamine, the "reward" chemical that the brain produces.
  • In 2008 it was estimated that there were 1.9 million past-month cocaine users in the U.S., of which approximately 359,000 were current crack users.
  • A study conducted at Johns Hopkins University analyzed brain scans of people who had used Ecstasy, and this study found that the drug had damaged their brains. Those who used Ecstasy had more brain damage than less frequent users.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab programs have the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study info and stuff like that are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there's someone experiencing substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehabilitation in whichever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure that their needs may be met properly when in rehab. Fortunately, there are numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers that have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug treatment the very best experience possible for anyone. Simply look for a top quality drug rehabilitation program and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehab facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind 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 can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible 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. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab center that is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a number of drug rehabilitation programs in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars consider variables apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
