Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders while in treatment in order to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who require drug abuse rehabilitation will frequently require solutions beyond what a traditional drug treatment center will be able to deliver. Due to the fact comprehensive medical solutions in many cases are an integral aspect of the physical recovery process for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who more than likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their habit, it is vital that these clients get the medical care required in conjunction with any rehabilitation solutions for drug use problem.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians receive quality treatment solutions in a rehab setting that's discreet and has rehab specialists available to them who understand the unique challenges which they have to deal with in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is sometimes triggered because of the problems they face because of their sexual preference, a rehab which will help them resolve these issues and give them the peace of mind they may have lacked before arriving in rehab could be a crucial part of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in 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 treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance.
