Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than many people in treatment have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in treatment to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not only become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.
