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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehab procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.
