Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. While this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders during rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many drug treatment programs who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehab program that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they like and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require 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 rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by many different drug and alcohol treatment facilities in order to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than somebody else whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
