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.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, there's no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a course of action which can be made considerably more manageable and safely supervised when in a proper detoxification or drug and alcohol rehab facility. Sometimes detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the very best of intentions individuals who go through detoxification independently in order to get sober could actually be putting their health or even their lives at risk. It is usually best to seek detoxification services inside a professional program to avoid such dangers as well as have a smooth transition from detoxification to rehabilitation in a quality drug rehabilitation facility.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. While this may seem perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
