Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a number of settings and with various treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being paid by many insurance companies, you don't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in rehabilitation need to have a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they require in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.
