Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug abuse could have distinctive obstacles they must overcome whilst in rehab, which treatment specialists in the center they elect to be a part of must be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to choose a rehab which is used to helping seniors and older adults address the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face that might include a broader spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and so on.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehab center that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
