Drug Addiction Facts

  • A chronic heroin user can often begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within hours of the last administration of the drug.
  • In King County, Washington, there were 84 heroin related deaths in 2012, up from 49 in 2009, with all of the increase among those under 30.
  • The risk for stroke associated with cocaine use is much higher than with other stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking due to the fact that cocaine use can result in the constriction of blood vessels, increased heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, and decreased oxygen supply to the brain.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance plans, there's no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. Although this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in treatment have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehab as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can decide which rehabilitation facility they wish to go to. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of decreased sentencing options in order to move ahead in their lives without having to be penalized further.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study data and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.
