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.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who need substance abuse treatment will usually require solutions beyond what a traditional alcohol and drug treatment facility can provide. Because extensive medical services tend to be an integral part of the physical recovery process for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who more than likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their addiction, it is vital that these clients receive the medical care required along with any treatment services for drug use issue.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation programs possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study data and so on are actually very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is available too around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in the U.S. there's someone fighting substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who might need treatment in whichever language it is that they are fluent in so that their needs may be catered to properly whilst in rehabilitation. Fortunately, there are numerous drug treatment programs which have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol treatment the best experience possible for anyone. Simply discover a top quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation center and find out if it is possible to receive rehabilitation in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage 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 people face. In addition, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by a variety of drug rehab centers to help help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's price for treatment might be different and someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
