Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous alcohol and drug treatment facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.
