Drug Addiction Facts

  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • More than half a million visits to hospital emergency rooms a year are drug-related.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from a number of drug rehabilitation programs to help help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehab could be different and another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars consider variables aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
