Drug Addiction Facts

  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The 5 and 10 mg strength methadone tablets are the only formulations approved by FDA for use in pain management and other formulations, including dispersible tablets, have been prescribed for pain control.
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehab facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who battle with substance abuse could have unique challenges they have to conquer during rehab, which rehabilitation professionals within the rehab they choose to take part in should be keen of so that a full recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to decide on a facility that's used to helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and substance abuse problems that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of services including health care and so on.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab due to a court order to fulfill a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehab often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehab requirements enforced with them in sentencing especially naturally when successfully completing a drug rehab facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.
