Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings and with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any sort of drug abuse, it is important that they acquire quality care to halt the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and possibly jeopardize their future. Because adolescent substance abuse which persists often continues into adulthood, mothers and fathers must remain vigilant and get their adolescent treatment as soon as a problem is observed in a center which addresses adolescent substance abuse. Many programs which deal with adolescents supply both inpatient and residential treatment, that has been proven to be the perfect environments for rehab clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders while in rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many drug treatment facilities who are able to specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab due to a court ruling in order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehabilitation often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehab requirements enforced with them as part of sentencing and also naturally when successfully graduating an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab program that is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this may not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
