Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians acquire quality treatment services within a rehab environment that is discreet and has rehabilitation specialists at their disposal who understand the unique problems that they have to deal with in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered because of the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a program which can help them resolve these problems and give them the confidence they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehab can be quite a crucial aspect of rehab for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehab centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to 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 expense of drug and alcohol treatment 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 may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically 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 typically cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by many different drug rehab programs in order to help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
