Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery need to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services intended for them when drug 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 obtaining the help they require in drug and alcohol rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehab facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study data and the like are now frequently available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous alcohol and drug rehab programs in an effort to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account variables besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
