Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

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

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
