Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation center while receiving treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than a lot of people in recovery need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment centers have the staff or resources to cater to 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 previously. Therapy, study data and the like are actually frequently accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program which is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a number of drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's price for treatment might be different and someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full cost of treatment. Registrars consider other factors besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
