Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Halfway House

A halfway house is a location that allows for a smooth transition when someone is newly sober independently or has completed an alcohol and drug treatment program and needs help re-acclimating into a normal lifestyle. Living in a halfway house, or sober living facility as they are sometimes called, is part of sentencing if someone has been found guilty of drug charges as well. If guidance is needed locating a halfway house, speak to an alcohol and drug treatment program and speak with a treatment counselor who will be able to point you in the right direction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term rehab for 30 days or less is an alternative which enables individuals in rehab to have the very much required change of environment required to have a chance at remaining sober. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term treatment for 30 days or less may not be prolonged enough for certain individuals with more extreme addiction and dependency concerns, and this should at all times be looked into after the 30 days to determine if more intensive rehabilitation is needed.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term treatment, which lasts for over 1 month, is definitely an option that delivers the commensurate intensity of care and suitable environment for anybody being affected by a significant addiction and dependency problem. Because people will continue to be in the residential long-term treatment center for about 120 days and even longer in some cases, these kinds of facilities offer all of the amenities needed to help client's stay as comfortable and amenable as it could possibly be while providing high quality rehabilitation to enable them to overcome their addiction forever.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders while in rehab to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug and alcohol rehab centers who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face in order to not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to rehabilitation as a term of their sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can choose which rehabilitation facility they would like to go to. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to enable them to move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehab centers to help help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider variables besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
