Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehabilitation to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment as part of a court order to fulfill part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol treatment frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug rehabilitation requirements enforced with them as part of sentencing specifically of course when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol treatment center.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab centers possess the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more centers that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study information and so on are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals might have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by many different drug treatment programs in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and another person whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
