Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a number of settings with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. 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 needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. Although this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehab require to experience a successful rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of substance abuse, it is important that they obtain high quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and perhaps jeopardize their future. Because adolescent drug abuse which continues often continues into adulthood, mothers and fathers must remain astute and get their adolescent rehabilitation when a problem is noticed in a program which addresses adolescent drug abuse. Many facilities which deal with adolescents supply both inpatient and residential rehab, which has been proven to be the perfect settings for rehab clients of this age.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab program that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from a number of alcohol and drug rehab programs to help help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
