Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's sometimes called, is a type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation center meant for many who need and require a thorough and organized rehabilitation plan and environment yet don't require night and day supervision. It can help make men and women in rehabilitation remain supported throughout the [[[rehab process without upsetting other activities they might need to sustain during treatment. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an option for many who have completed an inpatient or residential center and need assistance with the smooth transition back to an average drug-free lifestyle.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.


Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers to help help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and another individual whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full cost of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors in addition to income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
