Outpatient

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during treatment to find resolution due to the fact one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Because drug use for gays and lesbians might be triggered by the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a rehab which will help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked prior to arriving in rehabilitation can be quite a crucial part of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehab frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol treatment requirements enforced on them as part of sentencing and also naturally when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.
