Facts

  • Youth who cohabit with alcoholics tend to score lower on tests in regards to family cohesion, intellectual and cultural orientation, recreational orientation, and independence.
  • Research has proven that long-term drug use results in changes in the brain that can affect the person long after they have stopped using drugs.
  • Physical addiction to alcohol occurs in consistently heavy drinkers. Since their bodies have adapted to the presence of alcohol, they suffer alcohol addiction withdrawal symptoms if they suddenly stop drinking.
  • More than a third of marijuana treatment admissions in the U.S. refrain from using the drug in the month prior to admission.

Medicare - Altoona, PA.

Drug addiction affects every race, age and gender. For substance abusers that are 65 years or older, Medicare may be an option to pay for some if not all of their drug treatment. Medicare insurance may cover the treatment of drug addiction or alcoholism in both outpatient and inpatient settings, as long as certain requirements are met. The addict must obtain treatment from a Medicare-participating facility or provider. The patient's doctor notes that the services requested are medically necessary and that the patient's doctor creates the plan of treatment to be carried out. Additionally, Medicare will only cover a maximum of 190 days in a psychiatric hospital for the individual's entire lifetime.
