Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehab need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from numerous drug rehabilitation centers to help help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider variables aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
