Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehab programs who are able to specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face to be able to not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by a number of alcohol and drug treatment facilities in an effort to help clients afford treatment where this might not have been possible originally. 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 rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
