Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of preference.
