Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with different treatment lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. Although this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of substance abuse, it is crucial that they obtain quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and possibly put their future in jeopardy. Due to the fact adolescent drug use which continues often carries on into adulthood, parents must remain vigilant and get their adolescent rehabilitation the moment a problem is observed in a center which addresses adolescent drug use. A lot of programs which deal with adolescents provide both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, which has been shown to be the most beneficial settings for treatment clients of this age.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to rehab as a term of their sentencing. Quite often, the offender can decide which treatment facility they would like to attend. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to be able to progress in their lives without having to be penalized any further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab 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 are able to to fund a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program 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 treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with 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 handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehab facility which is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and meet with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
