Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and so on are actually very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will get better results, like 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 costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that's in their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a number of drug treatment centers to help help individuals afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account variables aside from income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
