Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings and with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, there's no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab program while receiving rehab services. Although this may seem ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehab have to have to have a successful rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation as part of a court order in order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug treatment specifications enforced on them in sentencing specifically naturally when successfully completing an alcohol and drug treatment program.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they need in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently 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 not able to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with 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 consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities to help help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment programs provide payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have adequate resources to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. As an example, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term center when in actuality a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate choice. To find out what payment assistance may be available, like a sliding fee scale, talk with the center for details.
