Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they require in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab center that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.
