Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who need substance abuse rehab will often need solutions beyond what a traditional alcohol and drug treatment center will be able to provide. Because comprehensive medical solutions tend to be an important aspect of the physical process of recovery for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who more than likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their habit, it is essential that these clients receive the health care required in conjunction with any rehabilitation solutions for drug use problem.

Gays and Lesbians

It is vital that gays and lesbians receive excellent rehabilitation services within a rehab setting which can be discreet and has treatment professionals at their disposal who understand the unique problems that they can experience in life.

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment center which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.
