Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance companies, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehab have to have to experience a successful rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to treatment as part of sentencing. In many cases, the offender can decide which treatment program they wish to enroll in. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of reduced sentencing options in order to move forward in their lives without having to be penalized further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehab facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab center that's in their network of providers and there could be other limitations like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by many different alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in an effort to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
