Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehab services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol treatment centers who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in America there's someone being affected by drug use that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may need rehab in whatever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure their needs can be met properly during treatment. Luckily, there are many drug rehab centers who have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make alcohol and drug rehabilitation the very best experience possible for any individual. Simply look for a high quality drug and alcohol rehab center and find out if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment may be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account variables besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehab facilities offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have adequate resources to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate choice. To determine what payment assistance can be offered, like a sliding fee scale, talk with the program for particulars.
