Drug Addiction Facts

  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The 5 and 10 mg strength methadone tablets are the only formulations approved by FDA for use in pain management and other formulations, including dispersible tablets, have been prescribed for pain control.
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

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

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.
