Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehab programs that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment due to a court order to satisfy a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehabilitation often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug rehabilitation specifications enforced on them as part of sentencing especially of course when successfully graduating an alcohol and drug treatment program.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they require in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like 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 alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by many different drug rehab facilities to help help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and less than another person whose finances are better making them better able to pay the full price of treatment. Registrars take into account other factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol treatment programs offer payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have adequate funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for their stay. By way of example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in reality a long-term facility will probably be the more ideal choice. To see what payment assistance may be available, for instance a sliding fee scale, consult the facility for particulars.
