Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during treatment to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
