Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a number of settings with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being included in many insurance plans, there is no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding level of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehab services. Even if this might appear perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any kind of substance abuse, it is essential that they receive top quality care to stop the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and perhaps put their future in jeopardy. Because adolescent substance abuse which persists often carries on into adulthood, parents must stay vigilant and get their adolescent rehab as soon as an issue is noticed in a facility which handles adolescent drug abuse. Many facilities which treat adolescents offer both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, which has been shown to be the most effective settings for rehab clients of this age.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides 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 alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as 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 representative. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from a number of alcohol and drug treatment facilities to help help individuals afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
