Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Halfway House

A halfway house is a location that allows for a smooth transition when someone is newly sober independently or has completed an alcohol and drug treatment program and needs help re-acclimating into a normal lifestyle. Living in a halfway house, or sober living facility as they are sometimes called, is part of sentencing if someone has been found guilty of drug charges as well. If guidance is needed locating a halfway house, speak to an alcohol and drug treatment program and speak with a treatment counselor who will be able to point you in the right direction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation 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 known in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders while in rehab to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehab facilities that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Women

Women have to have high quality treatment in rehab but will also need special awareness of the unique challenges they face because of their gender. Women and men not just face different and distinctive challenges in daily life as a result of gender, but also may abuse alcohol and drugs for unique reasons. drug and alcohol treatment programs which appeal to women and the specific and unique needs that women face often helps significantly on a women's path to long term sobriety and a higher standard of living.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab as part of a court order to fulfill part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehabilitation requirements enforced with them in sentencing and also of course when successfully completing a drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehab may be different and lower than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
