Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, there's no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Native American Or Alaska Native Languages

Native Americans and Alaska Natives in many cases struggle with alcoholism along with other drug use problems at higher rates than other portions of the population. The challenge is treating Native Americans and Alaska Natives in a program which provides rehab in their languages, in order to be understood and have counselors accessible that they can communicate freely with. While these kinds of treatment programs are few and far between, you will find centers available which deliver treatment services using the language of Native Americans and Alaska Natives is going to provide greater results for these clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment facility which is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from a variety of drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and another individual whose finances are better making them better able to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
