Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings and with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehab have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug rehab centers that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face in order to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the possibility or ordered to treatment as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can choose which rehab center they would like to enroll in. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of reduced sentencing options to enable them to progress in their lives without getting penalized any more.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
