Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during treatment to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug treatment facilities that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment facility that's within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.
