Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with various treatment lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being included in many insurance companies, there's no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might appear ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in rehabilitation to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug rehabilitation facilities that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor 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 particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
