Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even if this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's sometimes called, is a kind of alcohol and drug treatment program meant for those who need and want a comprehensive and organized treatment strategy and environment yet don't require 24 hours a day care. It can help make people in recovery stay supported during the process without interfering with other activities they may need to sustain while in treatment. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also a choice for those who have completed an inpatient or residential program and need help with the smooth transition back to a normal drug-free lifestyle.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services readily available 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 support they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person'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 drawback but people actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug treatment center that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug 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 stay in the treatment program of choice.
