Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery need to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehab to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're 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 rehabilitation center.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by a number of alcohol and drug treatment facilities in an effort to help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for treatment could possibly be different and less than another individual whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
