Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, because the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehabilitation programs that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab as part of a court order to fulfill a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug treatment often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug rehabilitation specifications enforced on them in sentencing especially of course when successfully graduating a drug rehab facility.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study information and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that is within their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous drug rehabilitation programs in order to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
