Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehab to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug treatment centers who can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not simply become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and stuff like that are now very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people really 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 individuals face. In addition, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with 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 rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
