Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving rehab services. Although this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehab have to have to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehab programs that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians receive quality rehab solutions within a rehabilitation setting that is discreet and has treatment specialists available to them who understand the unique problems that they can have to deal with in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a rehab which will help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehab can be a crucial aspect of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Other than ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get 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 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 help in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as 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 expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are 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 can be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from many different drug and alcohol treatment programs in order to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been possible originally. As an example, one client's fee for treatment could possibly be different and another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
