Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy is occasionally taken in conjunction with psychedelic drugs, such as LSD which is known as "candy flipping". Taking Ecstasy in combination with Ketamine is called "kitty flipping".
  • Research shows that the driving skills of someone under the influence of marijuana are impaired for at least 4-6 hours after smoking a single marijuana cigarette, long after the "high" is gone.
  • One of the more serious psychological side effects of stimulant drugs, particularly when abused, is the possibility of amphetamine induced psychosis. This type of psychosis can also occur at therapeutic doses as a result of long-term use of the drug. Individuals who experience this type of psychosis will exhibit paranoia, hallucinations and delusions. It is estimated that anywhere from 5 to 15% of users fail to recover completely.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term rehabilitation, which lasts for longer than 30 days, can be an option that delivers the commensurate intensity of care and appropriate environment for anyone struggling with a life threatening addiction and dependency issue. Because people will stay in a residential long-term rehab center for approximately 3-6 months and even longer occasionally, these kinds of facilities offer all the amenities needed to make a client's remain as comfortable and amenable as it could possibly be while providing quality treatment to help them conquer their habit forever.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by a number of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for rehab could be different and less than another individual whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
