Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face to enable them to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.
