Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in many different settings with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being included in many insurance companies, you don't have to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a course of action which can be made a lot more manageable and safely overseen when in a professional detoxification or drug and alcohol rehab program. Sometimes detoxification isn't risk-free, and even with the best of intentions people who go through detoxification on their own in order to get sober might really be putting their own health or perhaps their lives at risk. It is always far better to seek out detoxification services in a professional facility to avoid such risks as well as have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment at a top quality drug rehab center.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who has to be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term rehab for 30 days or less is an alternative which enables individuals in recovery to have the much needed change of environment needed to have a chance at staying abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehab for 30 days or less may not be prolonged enough for certain individuals with more extreme addiction and dependency issues, and this should always be looked into after the 30 days to determine if more extensive rehabilitation is needed.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's fee for treatment may be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehab programs offer payment assistance to help individuals who might possibly not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay. By way of example, Occasionally insurance only covers a short-term facility when in fact a long-term facility will probably be the more suitable option. To determine what payment assistance may be offered, say for example a sliding fee scale, talk with the center for details.
