Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being covered by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs is really a course of action which can be made far more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detox or drug and alcohol rehab center. Often detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the very best of intentions individuals who go through detoxification on their own in an effort to get sober could really be putting their health or perhaps their lives at risk. It is usually advisable to seek detoxification services in a professional program in order to avoid such hazards and also to have a smooth progression from detoxification to rehab at a quality alcohol and drug rehab center.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services during their rehab procedure. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehab services. Even though this may seem perfect it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, 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 care insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug rehab center which is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.
