Substance Abuse MYTH: only rich people can afford rehab.
FACT: While rehab can be expensive, many insurance plans can cover at least part of treatment. People under a certain level of income may qualify to attend some rehab centers through Medicaid. Some centers also offer financial aid or payment plans. Employers or family members may also lend a hand.
FACT: Prescription drugs can be as addictive as illicit drugs. Drug abuse is especially dangerous for young adults, who suffer from almost five deaths per day from a prescription drug overdose. ADHD medications, narcotics, and anti-anxiety medications are among the most commonly abused.
