Outpatient

Even though this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is sometimes triggered because of the problems they face because of their sexual preference, a facility which can help them resolve these issues and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in rehabilitation can be quite a crucial part of recovery for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug treatment often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol treatment specifications enforced on them as part of sentencing especially of course when successfully graduating a drug rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.
