Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment program while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than lots of people in treatment have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment programs who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can choose which rehabilitation program they would like to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of decreased sentencing options so that they can move forward in their lives without having to be penalized any more.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation as part of a court order in order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol treatment frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug rehab specifications enforced on them in sentencing especially of course when successfully completing a drug rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.
