Types of Drug Rehab Coverage
Are you or someone you love affected by drug or alcohol abuse? For many families, the strain of substance abuse can tear apart relationships and devastate lives. Maybe it is time to seek treatment—perhaps it is time for a change.
But how can you afford treatment? Sometimes the cost of treatment makes getting help seem impossible. Yet thousands of Americans get help for drug and alcohol abuse each year. Let’s take a closer look at how drug rehabilitation and treatment is paid for. Read on to find out how we can help you find the treatment you need.
Three Ways to Pay for Substance Abuse Treatment
There are three main ways to pay for drug and alcohol rehab:
- Out Of Pocket. This is when rehab is paid in cash by you or someone who cares about you.
- Insurance. Health and Mental Health insurance coverage may cover your treatment. Did you know that legislation was passed in 2010 to help you get the insurance coverage you need?
- Government Support. Usually in the form of block grants to the treatment center itself, these allow for people to have treatment for little or no cost. The problem is that these treatment centers are usually not as good as insurance or out-of-pocket treatment centers.
How to Find the Best Drug and Alcohol Rehab
The simplest way to find the best treatment is to aim high. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, especially if the economy is not doing so well. You may be surprised how much quality treatment you can get with a simple insurance policy.
The best treatment possible is inpatient treatment. This is an intensive overnight drug treatment that lasts typically from 30 to 90 days. These treatment centers often offer attractive surroundings, a relaxed atmosphere and dedicated, caring staff who make treatment as enjoyable as it can be.
Most inpatient drug treatment centers will offer detox followed by a structured treatment that includes individual counseling, group counseling, fun activities, healthy meals, psychiatric consult and more.
Modern treatment centers know that they have two duties: to take good care of the patient, and to run a business. Because they are a business, they know that you are the customer and that while you need to follow the program to get the best out of treatment, they often try to make this as pleasant as it possibly can be.
