Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in treatment require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not merely become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the help they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If 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 ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.
