Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their treatment process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, because the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in recovery need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehab programs who are able to specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians acquire excellent rehabilitation services within a rehabilitation setting which is discreet and has rehabilitation specialists at their disposal who understand the unique problems they have to deal with in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians might be triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a program which can help them handle these issues and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked before arriving in treatment can be a crucial aspect of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Criminal Justice Clients

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

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
