Drug Addiction Facts

  • Children treated with stimulant drugs such as Ritalin to control (ADHD) take up cigarette smoking earlier, smoke more heavily and are more likely to abuse cocaine and other stimulants as adults.
  • Aside from being born addicted to crack cocaine and experiencing the negative health effects of such a circumstance, crack babies are also at risk of contracting HIV through a HIV-infected mother who can transmit the virus perinatally to her child. This is an important factor to consider given that more than 60 percent of new AIDS cases are women.
  • A driver who is under the influence of marijuana loses the ability to "track" (stay in lane) through curves, to brake quickly, and to maintain speed and the proper distance between cars is affected.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment require to have a productive rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehab as a term of their sentencing. In many cases, the offender can choose which treatment program they wish to go to. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options to be able to progress in their lives without getting penalized further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have 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 apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into account additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
