Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may seem perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous alcohol and drug treatment facilities that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the help they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program which is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.
