Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehab services. Although this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many individuals in recovery need to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who require substance abuse rehabilitation will often need services beyond what a standard drug treatment center can provide. Because extensive medical solutions will often be an integral part of the physical recovery process for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who most likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease because of their habit, it is vital that these clients obtain the medical treatment required in conjunction with any rehabilitation solutions for their drug abuse problem.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into treatment as part of a court order in order to meet part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug treatment requirements enforced on them as part of sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing a drug rehabilitation program.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like 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 rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket 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 drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
