Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. While this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in treatment need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
