Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment have to have to have a productive 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 drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug treatment programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and meet with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.
