There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab programs possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study information and the like are actually frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative.
