Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions as part of their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug rehab centers that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab center that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of choice.
