Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in recovery need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol treatment centers that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment centers possess the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study information and the like are now frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and meet with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
