Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with different rehabilitation 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 programs now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Although this may appear ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab programs have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more centers that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study information and the like are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

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 forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
