Drug Addiction Facts

  • Prescription stimulants are commonly abused because of how easily they are accessed, and can be obtained easily through friends and family, direct prescriptions from a physician, or a prescription "drug dealer." However, the most common source of prescription stimulants is the medicine cabinets of the individual's friends and family.
  • Risk of contracting hepatitis C (HCV) among injecting cocaine users begins with the first injection, and within 2 years, nearly 40 percent of injection drug users are exposed to HCV.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions as part of their treatment procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. Even if this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians obtain excellent rehab solutions within a rehab environment which can be discreet and has treatment professionals at their disposal who understand the unique problems that they have to deal with in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians may also be triggered by the challenges they face because of their sexual preference, a rehab which can help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in rehabilitation can be quite a crucial part of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab center that's within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.
