Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing treatment services. Although this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehab have to have to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehabilitation programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

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

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
