Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol treatment programs who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians obtain quality rehabilitation services in a rehabilitation setting that is discreet and with rehabilitation professionals at their disposal who comprehend the unique challenges they experience in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which can help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in rehab can be a crucial part of rehab for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact 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 programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab center that is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.
