Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians receive quality rehabilitation services in a treatment setting which can be discreet and with rehab professionals available to them who understand the distinctive challenges they experience in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered because of the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a program which will help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in treatment could be a crucial aspect of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab facilities have the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are now frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, 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 generally cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.
