Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
