Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehab in order to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug treatment facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Gays and Lesbians

It is essential that gays and lesbians obtain excellent treatment solutions in a rehab environment which can be discreet and with rehab specialists available to them who understand the unique challenges which they have to deal with in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered because of the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a program which will help them handle these issues and give them the peace of mind they may have lacked before arriving in rehab can be a crucial part of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who battle with substance abuse may have distinctive challenges they have to overcome while in treatment, which treatment professionals in the program they elect to take part in should be keen of in order that a full recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to select a center which is familiar with helping seniors and older adults tackle the distinctive life and drug use problems that these clients face which might include a broader spectrum of solutions including medical treatment and so on.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for 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 center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehab center that's inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
