Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being covered by many insurance companies, there's no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. Even though this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab have to have to have a successful rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the possibility or ordered to rehab as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can decide which rehab facility they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options so that they can move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug treatment center which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility available from numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities to help help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account variables aside from income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
