Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment have to have to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically hone in on the issues 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 not wish 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 due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
