Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings and with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance plans, there is 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 solutions regarding intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from a number of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's price for treatment could be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider variables in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
