Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and speak with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by many different drug rehabilitation centers in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and less than another person whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehab centers provide payment assistance to help clients who may possibly not have enough money to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay.
