Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehab need to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab facilities have the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
