Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehab have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab programs possess the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more programs that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study info and so on are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.
