Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's occasionally referred to as, is a type of drug rehab center meant for individuals who need and want a thorough and organized rehabilitation plan and environment yet don't need 24 / 7 supervision. It can help make people in treatment stay supported throughout the [[[rehab course of action without disturbing other activities they might need to maintain whilst in treatment. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an alternative for those who have completed an inpatient or residential facility and want help with the smooth transition back into a normal drug free way of life.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.
