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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.
