Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings and with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might seem ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as a term of their sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can decide which treatment program they wish to attend. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of decreased sentencing options to be able to move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor 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 expense of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.
