With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

While this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab have to have to have a successful rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the choice or ordered to rehab as a term of their sentencing. In many cases, the offender can choose which treatment program they wish to attend. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of reduced sentencing options to be able to move forward in their lives without getting penalized further.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the support they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in order to help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
