Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who should be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions as part of their rehab process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during treatment to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out 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 within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment center which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
