Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
  • There are different types of inpatient treatment facilities such as hospital based, wilderness, faith based 12-step vs. non-12-step, long-term extended care, adult or adolescent and gender.
  • Findings from a recent study concluded that after three years, the positive effects of Ritalin on conditions such as ADHD typically fade, and by eight years there is no evidence that this type of medication used to treat the disorder produces any academic or behavioral benefits.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than many people in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders while in rehab to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug rehab center which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.
