Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings and with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the various 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 included in many insurance plans, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is really a process which can be made a lot more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detoxification or drug rehabilitation center. Often detoxification isn't risk free, and even with good intentions individuals who undergo detoxification by themselves so that they can get sober could actually be putting their own health or even their lives at risk. It is usually advisable to look for detoxification services inside a professional facility in order to avoid such risks as well as have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment in a top quality alcohol and drug rehab center.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that has to be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. While this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term rehabilitation for 30 days or less is an option which allows men and women in rehab to have the very much required change of environment necessary to have a shot at staying abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehab for 30 days or less may not be prolonged enough for particular people with more extreme addiction and dependency problems, and this should always be looked into at the end of the 30 days to determine if more extensive rehab is required.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.
