Drug Addiction Facts

  • Long-term methamphetamine use can result in extreme weight loss because the drug suppresses appetite.
  • Heroin can either be injected into a vein ("mainlining"), smoked in a water pipe or standard pipe, mixed in a marijuana joint or regular cigarette, inhaled as smoke through a straw or snorted as powder through the nose.
  • A recent study suggests that because most children show some of the behaviors associated with so-called "ADHD" such as inattention and hyperactivity at times, it is crucial to determine whether this behavior is simply immature or exuberant or is actually associated with a disorder before medicating them with prescription stimulants which could put them in harm's way.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a course of action which can be made considerably more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detoxification or alcohol and drug rehab facility. Often detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the very best of intentions people who go through detoxification on their own in an effort to get sober might really be putting their health or even their lives in danger. It is usually far better to seek out detoxification services inside a professional center in order to avoid such risks and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to treatment in a top quality alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may seem ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Other Languages

In every single city in America there's someone struggling with drug use that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may need treatment in whichever language it is they are fluent in to ensure their needs may be met properly whilst in treatment. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehabilitation centers which have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make alcohol and drug rehab the best experience possible for any individual. Simply look for a high quality drug rehab program and inquire if it is possible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
