Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while undergoing rehab services. While this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in rehab require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders while in treatment to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other.

Persons With HIV/AIDS

Persons with HIV/AIDS who may need substance abuse rehabilitation will very often require services beyond what a standard alcohol and drug rehab center can provide. Because extensive healthcare services will often be a key part of the physical process of recovery for addicts with HIV/AIDS, who most likely have experienced a progression and worsening of the disease due to their habit, it is important that these clients obtain the health care needed along with any rehab solutions for substance abuse problem.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians receive quality treatment solutions in a treatment environment that's discreet and with rehabilitation professionals at their disposal who comprehend the unique problems that they have to deal with in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the problems they face due to their sexual preference, a program which can help them handle these problems and give them the peace of mind that they've lacked prior to arriving in treatment is usually a crucial part of rehab for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with drug abuse may have distinctive challenges they must overcome while in treatment, which treatment specialists in the rehab they decide to be a part of have to be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to choose a center that is used to helping seniors and older adults deal with the distinctive life and drug abuse problems that these clients face which may include a broader spectrum of services including medical treatment and so on.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehab due to a court order to satisfy a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehab frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with alcohol and drug treatment specifications enforced with them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully graduating a drug treatment facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
