Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. While this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution due to the fact one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug treatment facilities that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Women

Women need high quality rehab in rehab but can also require particular focus on the unique issues they face because of gender. Men and women not just face different and unique problems in life as a consequence of gender, but in addition may abuse alcohol and drugs for completely different reasons. drug rehabilitation facilities which appeal to women and the specific and unique needs that women face often helps significantly on the women's path to long term abstinence and a higher quality of life.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.
