Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings along with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a process which can be made a lot more manageable and safely overseen when in a proper detoxification or drug treatment program. Sometimes detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the best of intentions individuals who go through detoxification on their own so that they can get sober may very well be putting their health or even their lives in danger. It is always best to seek out detoxification solutions inside a professional program to prevent such risks and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to rehab at a top quality drug and alcohol rehab center.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that needs to be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their treatment process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Although this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehab require to have a productive rehab.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term treatment for 30 days or less is a possibility which enables people in rehab to have the much required change of environment required to have a chance at staying abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehabilitation for 30 days or less may not be lengthy enough for certain individuals with more extreme addiction and dependency problems, and this should at all times be evaluated at the end of the 30 days to determine if more extensive treatment is required.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they like and speak with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.
