Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients.

Gays and Lesbians

Seniors/Older Adults

So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to select a rehab that is familiar with helping seniors and older adults address the distinctive life and substance abuse issues that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and the like.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.
