Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, there's no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs is a process which can be made far more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detox or drug and alcohol rehab center. Sometimes detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the best of intentions people who proceed through detoxification independently in order to get sober could really be putting their own health or even their lives at risk. It is always best to seek detoxification services inside a professional facility in order to avoid such risks and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to treatment at a top quality alcohol and drug treatment center.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. While this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in treatment require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term treatment for 30 days or less is an alternative which allows men and women in rehab to have the very much required change of environment necessary to have a shot at staying abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehabilitation for 30 days or less may not be lengthy enough for certain individuals with more serious addiction and dependency problems, and this should always be looked into at the end of the 30 days to determine if more intensive treatment is necessary.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders while in treatment to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people 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 men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and speak with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
