Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services during their rehabilitation process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in treatment have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehab to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with drug abuse may have unique challenges they have to overcome during rehabilitation, which rehabilitation professionals within the facility they opt to be a part of should be keen of in order that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to decide on a program that's used to helping seniors and older adults address the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services 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 Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer 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 which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
