Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies have found that the THC in marijuana disrupts coordination and balance, which severely impacts learning, the performance of complicated tasks, participation in sports, and driving.
  • Although Ecstasy does not cause true hallucinations like those experienced while high on LSD, many users report distorted time and perception while under the influence of this drug.
  • Common additives used to cut cocaine are sugars, anesthetics and cornstarch but it is also sometimes cut with other illicit drugs, such as heroin, codeine, amphetamine, PCP, LSD, and hashish.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug treatment.

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 some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that's inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.
