With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with HIV/AIDS who are in need of drug abuse rehab will very often need services beyond what a standard drug rehabilitation facility will be able to provide. Because comprehensive medical solutions are often an important part of the physical recovery process for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who most likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their habit, it is important that these clients get the medical care needed in conjunction with any treatment solutions for substance abuse problem.

Seniors/Older Adults

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers possess the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehab facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of drug rehab programs in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full price of treatment. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
