Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings along with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the various needs of clients with any type of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential programs now being covered 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 low end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of drug use, it is vital that they receive top quality care to halt the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and possibly put their future in jeopardy. Because adolescent drug abuse which continues often continues into adulthood, parents must remain vigilant and get their adolescent treatment the moment an issue is noticed in a facility which addresses adolescent substance abuse. A lot of programs which treat adolescents supply both inpatient and residential rehabilitation, which has been proven to be the very best environments for rehab clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehab to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug treatment centers who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment as part of a court order in order to meet a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehab often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug treatment specifications enforced with them as part of sentencing specifically naturally when successfully graduating a drug rehab center.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all 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 treatment facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by many different drug and alcohol treatment programs to help help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could be different and less than someone else whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
