Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their treatment process. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a treatment program while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than lots of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must deal with both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehabilitation programs who can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of choice.
