100% Confidential.

Gays and Lesbians

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

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment as part of a court ruling to fulfill a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug and alcohol rehabilitation specifications enforced on them as part of sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully completing a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment programs offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term center when in fact a long-term center is going to be the more ideal option. To find out what payment assistance could be available, such as a sliding fee scale, consult the center for details.
