With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.


Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a process which can be made much more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detoxification or drug rehabilitation center. Sometimes detoxification isn't risk-free, and even with good intentions individuals who undergo detoxification on their own in an effort to get sober might really be putting their health or perhaps their lives at risk. It is always best to look for detoxification services in a professional program in order to avoid such dangers and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to rehab in a quality drug treatment facility.


Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while receiving treatment services. While this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Pregnant/Postpartum Women

Pregnant and postpartum women not only require assistance from a high quality treatment for their own health and wellbeing but in addition for the wellbeing of their unborn child or for the child they've given birth to who needs to be properly cared for as they become rehabbed and as a result capable of being a better mother. Treatment opportunities exist which give them in addition to their child the appropriate healthcare services while making certain they obtain the rehab they need to become sober and be able to stay that way in order to be the best mother they can be.


Not all drug treatment programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.


Some rehab programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they like and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.
