Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings with various treatment lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance plans, there is no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding level of care, because the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. While this may seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in recovery require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders while in rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug treatment centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Women

Women have to have high quality treatment in rehab but can also require particular awareness of the unique issues they face because of their gender. Males and females not just face varying and unique challenges in daily life due to gender, but in addition may abuse drugs and alcohol for very different reasons. drug and alcohol treatment centers which cater to women and the specific and unique needs that women face can help enormously on the women's path to long term abstinence and a higher standard of living.

Men

Just as women and men encounter varying and different challenges in daily life that happen to be specific to their gender, women and men can also face unique challenges in rehabilitation that are gender-specific, which is the reason a center designed specifically with these unique needs and challenges at heart can be extremely ideal for someone searching for a powerful rehabilitation option.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to treatment as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can decide which treatment program they would like to enroll in. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options in order to move forward in their lives without having to be penalized further.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there's someone being affected by drug use that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehab in whatever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure their needs can be catered to properly while in treatment. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol rehabilitation the very best experience possible for any individual. Simply locate a top quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation program and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that's within their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers to help help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for treatment could be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
