Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab program while receiving rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab facilities that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to be able to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab program that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment center of preference.
