Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment programs that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is essential that gays and lesbians obtain excellent treatment services within a treatment environment that's discreet and with treatment professionals at their disposal who understand the unique challenges that they have to deal with in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which can help them resolve these problems and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked prior to arriving in treatment is usually a crucial aspect of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug abuse might have unique challenges they have to conquer whilst in rehab, which treatment professionals in the rehab they elect to take part in must be keen of so that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to pick a rehab that's used to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of services including medical care and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
