Drug Addiction Facts

  • The increased levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine caused by prescription stimulants use may in turn cause suppression of growth hormone secretion and directly affect height development in children.
  • 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.
  • Prescription opioid pain medications such as Oxycontin and Vicodin can have effects similar to heroin, and statistics and studies indicate that abuse of these drugs may open the door to heroin abuse.

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while undergoing treatment services. While this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehab require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.


Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab program.


Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from a variety of drug and alcohol treatment centers to help help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
