Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug rehab programs who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug use could possibly have unique obstacles they have to overcome whilst in rehab, which rehabilitation specialists in the program they decide to be a part of should be keen of to ensure a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to choose a program which is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and substance abuse issues that these clients face which may include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and the like.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind 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 drug rehabilitation 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 qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance.
