Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders during rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face in order to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is vital that gays and lesbians receive excellent rehabilitation services within a rehab environment which is discreet and with rehabilitation professionals available to them who comprehend the distinctive problems which they experience in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians is sometimes triggered because of the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a facility which can help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in rehab is usually a crucial part of recovery for gay and lesbian clients.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.
