100% Confidential.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians acquire excellent rehab solutions in a treatment environment which can be discreet and with treatment specialists available to them who understand the distinctive problems they experience in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is sometimes triggered because of the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a program which will help them handle these issues and give them the confidence they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehabilitation can be quite a crucial aspect of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab facilities possess the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study data and so on are actually very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover 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 care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
