Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to suit the various demands of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being included in many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehab program while undergoing rehab services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in treatment require to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are many alcohol and drug treatment centers who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehab program that's 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 quality facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab center of preference.
