Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that must be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of alcohol and drug rehab facilities that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Gays and Lesbians

It is essential that gays and lesbians obtain excellent rehab solutions in a rehab setting which can be discreet and has rehabilitation specialists at their disposal who comprehend the distinctive problems that they experience in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the challenges they face because of their sexual preference, a program which will help them handle these problems and give them the peace of mind they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehabilitation can be quite a crucial aspect of recovery for gay and lesbian clients.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum 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 drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
