Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in treatment require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to enable them to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

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

Spanish

Not all drug rehab centers have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study info and the like are now very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehab center that is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
