Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face in order to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

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 the issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they need in alcohol and drug treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.
