Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution simply because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug treatment centers who are able to specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

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

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of drug rehab programs to help help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and less than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances apart from income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
