Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings and with different rehab 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 companies, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to level of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any kind of substance abuse, it is crucial that they receive quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and maybe jeopardize their future. Because adolescent drug use which persists often carries on into one's adult life, mothers and fathers must continue to be astute and get their adolescent rehabilitation the moment an issue is noticed in a facility which addresses adolescent substance abuse. Several facilities which treat adolescents provide both inpatient and residential treatment, which has been shown to be the perfect environments for rehab clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehab to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face so that they can not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the choice or ordered to treatment as a term of their sentencing. Quite often, the offender can choose which rehabilitation center they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to be able to move ahead in their lives without having to be penalized any further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from a number of drug and alcohol treatment facilities in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab could be different and another individual whose finances are better making them better able to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
