Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in rehab to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug treatment programs that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who may need drug abuse treatment will frequently require services beyond what a standard drug treatment facility can provide. Simply because comprehensive medical services tend to be an important part of the physical process of healing for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who very likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease because of their addiction, it is crucial that these clients receive the medical treatment required along with any rehabilitation services for their drug use issue.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should check with 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 handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

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 programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.
