Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who has to be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services as part of their treatment process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug treatment programs who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and speak 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 substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.
