Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. While this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any sort of drug use, it is vital that they obtain quality care to stop the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and possibly put their future in jeopardy. Due to the fact adolescent substance abuse which persists often carries on into one's adult life, parents must continue to be astute and get their adolescent rehab as soon as a problem is observed in a program which addresses adolescent drug use. Many facilities which deal with adolescents provide both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, which has been proven to be the perfect environments for rehabilitation clients of this age.

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 alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehabilitation facilities that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are paid for 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 how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities to help help clients pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and less than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment facilities provide payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have enough money to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in reality a long-term facility will probably be the more appropriate selection. To see what payment assistance may be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, talk with the program for details.
