  • Ambien sometimes take more of the drug than is actually necessary because they have forgotten that they have already taken their nightly dose which may lead to more intense side effects and risks.
  • Individuals who wish to prevent the onset of heroin or methadone withdrawal will often use OxyContin to alleviate or prevent withdrawal.
  • Alcohol depresses body functions that play a key role in involuntary actions such as breathing and the gag reflex which prevents choking. A fatal dose of alcohol will eventually stop these functions.

Outpatient Treatment

Drug or alcohol treatment programs which are offered on an outpatient basis are readily available to addicted people who have circumstances which prevent them from being able to participate in an inpatient rehabilitation facility. An outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation program delivers many of the same services as an inpatient program, but allows for flexibility as opposed to an inpatient drug rehabilitation facility where the individual is expected to remain at the rehab program until treatment has been fully completed. Outpatient drug or alcohol rehab is also offered for those who have already gone through residential or inpatient treatment but also need a comprehensive aftercare program which will provide further support and therapy to help them remain clean and sober.

Payment Assistance (based on Facility)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in the United States offer payment assistance to people having difficulties with drug or alcohol addiction and want to get help. The person in need of rehabilitation can choose a rehab facility which is a good fit, meaning the treatment plan and design of the program will supply them the best results. The addicted individual can then talk to one of the treatment professionals at the drug rehab facility to discuss what kind of payment assistance options are available or that they qualify for. The financial department in most drug and alcohol treatment centers are more than willing to work with potential clients to get them started by offering payment assistance, and if this is unavailable, treatment professionals will typically work with the person to locate an equivalent or similar treatment facility which is more affordable or that can provide workable financing options so that they can receive the rehabilitation they so desperately need.
