Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents become involved in any sort of substance abuse, it is crucial that they receive top quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and perhaps jeopardize their future. Because adolescent drug use which persists often continues into adulthood, parents must stay vigilant and get their adolescent rehab as soon as an issue is noticed in a facility which handles adolescent drug use. Several facilities which deal with adolescents provide both inpatient and residential treatment, that has been shown to be the very best environments for rehabilitation clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehab centers who are able to specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become sober 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.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab 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 because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.
