Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers who are able to specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.
