100% Confidential.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving treatment services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more programs that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study data and the like are actually frequently accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every single city in America there is someone struggling with substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might require treatment in whatever language it is that they are fluent in so that their needs may be catered to properly when in rehab. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment facilities who have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol rehab the best experience possible for anyone. Simply locate a quality drug rehabilitation facility and inquire if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind 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 can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is within their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment center of preference.
