Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving treatment services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab facilities who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face so that they can not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and also other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the help they need in drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab programs possess the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study info and the like are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and consult 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 certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with 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 may be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from many different drug treatment facilities in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and less than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
