Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who should be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services during their rehabilitation process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not 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 drug abuse because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab program that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
