Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug treatment programs who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face to be able to not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who need substance abuse rehabilitation will frequently require solutions beyond what a traditional alcohol and drug treatment facility will be able to deliver. Simply because comprehensive medical solutions will often be a vital aspect of the physical process of healing for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who very likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease because of their habit, it is important that these clients get the medical care required along with any rehab services for his or her drug use issue.

Gays and Lesbians

It is essential that gays and lesbians obtain excellent rehabilitation solutions in a treatment environment that is discreet and with rehabilitation specialists available to them who comprehend the unique problems that they can experience in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which will help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked prior to arriving in rehab can be quite a crucial part of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that's inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of alcohol and drug rehab programs to help help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment centers offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have sufficient funds to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for their stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term center when in fact a long-term center will be the more suitable selection. To see what payment assistance can be available, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the center for details.
