Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research has shown that marijuana can produce a range of transient psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits, such as deficits in learning, short-term memory, working memory, executive function, abstract ability, decision-making and attention.
  • When drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed in routine pediatric doses, they commonly cause hypertension, which can lead to an enlarged heart.
  • Some studies suggest that a marijuana user's risk of heart attack during the first hour after having smoked the drug is four times his or her usual risk.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a successful rehab.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's sometimes referred to as, is a type of drug and alcohol rehab center set up for many who need and want a thorough and organized treatment strategy and environment yet don't require 24 hours a day care. It can help make people in rehabilitation stay supported treatment course of action without interfering with other day to day activities they may need to sustain whilst in rehabilitation. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also a possibility for individuals who have finished an inpatient or residential program and want help with the smooth transition back into a normal drug free way of life.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.
