Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance companies, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in rehab have to have to have a productive rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to rehabilitation as part of sentencing. Quite often, the offender can pick which rehab facility they wish to go to. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without having to be penalized any further.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and also other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with 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 representative. There can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers in order to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's price for rehab might be different and somebody else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
