Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can choose which treatment facility they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without having to be penalized any further.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehabilitation as part of a court order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug rehab specifications enforced on them as part of sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment facility which is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of drug rehab programs in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another person whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
