Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being paid by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab programs possess the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and the like are now very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through 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 rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by numerous drug treatment facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
