Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug rehab centers who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians obtain excellent rehab solutions in a rehab environment which is discreet and with rehab specialists at their disposal who understand the unique problems that they experience in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered because of the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a rehab which can help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence they may have lacked prior to arriving in treatment could be a crucial aspect of recovery for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug use might have unique challenges they have to conquer when in rehab, which treatment professionals in the center they opt to be a part of should be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to pick a facility which is familiar with helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and drug abuse issues that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of services including medical treatment and the like.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front 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 may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.
