Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in rehab require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not merely become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket 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 can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

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 rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
