Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any type of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term rehab, which lasts for more than four weeks, can be an option that delivers the commensurate intensity of care and suitable environment for anybody fighting a serious addiction and dependency problem. Because people will stay inside a residential long-term rehab facility for up to 120 days and even longer in some instances, these types of facilities provide all of the amenities needed to help client's remain as comfortable and amenable as it could possibly be while also delivering high quality treatment to help them overcome their addiction for good.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from numerous alcohol and drug treatment centers in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many alcohol and drug treatment centers provide payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have enough money to self pay for rehab or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term center when in reality a long-term center will be the more ideal selection. To see what payment assistance could be available, such as a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the center for particulars.
