Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug treatment facilities that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation due to a court ruling in order to meet part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehabilitation often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug treatment specifications enforced with them in sentencing specifically naturally when successfully completing an alcohol and drug treatment facility.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab facilities possess the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs 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 ever before. Therapy, study information and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehabilitation facility that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and meet with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
