Drug Addiction Facts

  • In 2012 the average age of new meth users was approximately 20 years old.
  • The increase in serotonin caused by Ecstasy which produces a high also results in a low because the drug also interferes with its synthesis which leads to a considerable depletion of serotonin. As a result, it takes the human brain a significant amount of time to rebuild the store of serotonin needed to perform important physiological and psychological functions.
  • Meth is most often abused for days on end known as a "binge", whereby users often forego sleep and food to use meth.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings and with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being paid by many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs is really a course of action which can be made a lot more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detox or alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility. Often detoxification isn't without risk, and even with good intentions individuals who go through detoxification on their own so that they can get sober could really be putting their health and even their lives in danger. It is always advisable to seek detoxification services in a professional facility to avoid such risks and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to treatment at a top quality alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment center while undergoing treatment services. Even if this might seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab require to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution simply because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol rehab facilities who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not merely 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.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehab as a term of their sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can select which treatment program they would like to attend. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options so that they can move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab due to a court ruling to fulfill part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug treatment often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug rehabilitation requirements enforced with them in sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully completing a drug rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab program that's within their network of providers and there might be other limitations like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.
