Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions during their treatment procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

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.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more programs that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study info and so on are now very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there is someone struggling with drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may need treatment in whatever language it is they are fluent in so that their needs can be catered to properly while in rehabilitation. Thankfully, there are many drug treatment programs that have counselors within their facility who speak other languages to make drug rehab the best experience possible for any individual. Simply locate a high quality alcohol and drug rehabilitation program and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from many different alcohol and drug rehab facilities to help help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and less than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
