Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehab facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Spanish

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

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could 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. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program which is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from a variety of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's price for treatment may be different and another person whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
