Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs and alcohol is really a course of action which can be made much more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detoxification or drug rehab program. Often detoxification isn't risk-free, and even with good intentions individuals who proceed through detoxification by themselves so that they can get sober could actually be putting their health and even their lives at risk. It is usually better to seek detoxification solutions in a professional facility to prevent such dangers and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to treatment at a top quality alcohol and drug rehab program.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that needs to be safely managed through detox services when intensely addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their rehab process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for 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 drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.
