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.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, because the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug rehab programs that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

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 situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug rehabilitation facilities to help help clients afford treatment where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's price for rehab may be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
