With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment facility while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehab need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab facilities that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab center that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and speak with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from many different alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs to help help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and lower than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to spend the money for full cost of treatment. Registrars consider additional factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
