Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities who can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face in order to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab centers possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by a number of alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's price for treatment could be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
