Drug Addiction Facts

  • The Food and Drug Administration now requires the manufactures of prescription stimulants to warn users of the cardiovascular problems that could be associated with the use of these types of medications.
  • Animal studies indicate that animals will work more persistently at pressing a bar for cocaine than for any other drug, including opiates. In one example, one monkey test subject pressed the bar 12,800 times until it got a single dose of cocaine. If the animal survives in such studies, it will return to the task of obtaining more cocaine.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab programs have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the demands 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. Counselling, study data and so on are actually frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab program which is inside 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 program they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in order to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and lower than another person whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program will be the more ideal selection.
