Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services

Mental health and substance abuse go hand in hand. This type of treatment specializes in drug and alcohol addiction treatment from the viewpoint that there may be underlying psychological and/or physiological conditions that may be the source of the person's addiction and that by identifying and correcting the underlying problem the urge to abuse drugs and/or alcohol will cease. Menta health and substance abuse is a complicated issue because the the two problems affect each other and interact. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse as well. And when alcohol or drug abuse increases, mental health problems usually increase too. Mental health drug rehab programs offer a variety of treatment programs to treat both mental health and substance abuse problems.

Long Term Drug Treatment Programs

Long term drug treatment is typically done in a residential setting where the individual will stay and live on the premises of an drug treatment facility for 90 days or longer. Individuals that are best suited for a long term drug treatment program are typically people that have completed other types of treatment such as counseling, outpatient therapy or short term residential rehabs with little to no success. This gives the recovering addict relief from outside sources and temptations, allowing them to focus solely on their addiction and recovery without distraction.

A long term drug treatment program typically directs the treatment focus on the "resocialization" of the individual. This addiction treatment model uses the program's entire "community," including other residents, staff, and the social context, as active components of addiction treatment. The primary focus of a long term drug treatment program is on developing personal accountability, responsibility and socially productive lives. A long term drug treatment program is highly structured with activities designed to help residents examine damaging beliefs and destructive patterns of behavior and to adopt new constructive strategies for dealing with life's challenges.

Drug Rehabs for Dual Diagnosis Clients

Dual diagnosis drug rehabs specialize in alcohol and drug addiction problems coupled with underlying psychological and/or physiological that might be the cause of the addiction problem. Drug rehabs for dual daignosis clients offer a variety of therapeutic programs to help provide individuals and families affected by alcoholism and drug addiction with the support needed for a successful recovery. The most beneficial aspect of a dual diagnosis drug rehab center is that the treatment is based on finding the cause of the addiction and treating it holistically as opposed to treating the symptoms with medications.

Drug Treatment Programs For HIV and AIDS Clients

Unfortunately, many people have contracted HIV due to their drug addiction activities, it is all to often today, that drug addiction and HIV/AIDS often accompany each other. Many people contract HIV by sharing syringes while injecting a drug. Others contract the HIV virus during sexual intercourse with someone who is HIV positive while under the influence of drugs.

For HIV and AIDS patients in need of a drug treatment program, it is vital to obtain addiction treatment immediately. Though every active addict faces the risk of death from their drug use and the lifestyle that typically is associated with a drug addiction problem, for individuals infected with the AIDS virus, the threat is especially dangerous. For these individuals, a longer and healthier life depends on following a very complex and sophisticated medication protocol. Drug abuse and the activities that accompany it make this kind of adherence nearly impossible.

If you or a loved one has HIV or AIDS, it is vital to get into a drug treatment program right away.

Drug Treatment For Gays and Lesbians

Drug treatment centers for gays and lesbians do not differ substantially from "straight" rehabilitation programs. However, in a gay/lesbian drug treatment program there is an increased awareness of the unique life stresses and experiences of members within this community. There is also a sensitivity and acceptance of sexual orientation. Gay/Lesbian drug treatment centers provide specific programming that meets the needs of the unique challenges facing gays and lesbians in a drug treatment center.

It is very inportant that the gay or lesbian individuals feel comfortable within the drug treatment environment. They need to feel that they are able to open up about their experiences and heal without fear of repercussion or discrimination from either the staff or the other participating addicts in the treatment facility. There are different views that people have about drug treatment centers specifically designed for the gay and lesbian community. One of the most common views is that gay/lesbian specific centers are the only truly safe place for a gay or lesbian individual to recover. Conversely, many others preach that since the "real world" is a mixed world, healing within a drug treatment center comprised of diverse individuals, yet in a gay aware and safe rehab center, is the better alternative.

Drug Treatment For Senior Citizens

Seniors with drug addiction issues is a problem that is escalating in the United States, making drug treatment for senior citizens extremely vital. Often lonely and without family members nearby, the elderly have a high rate of drug addiction that typically goes unnoticed and unattended to.

It is important to understand the special needs of a senior citizen before taking the step of selecting a drug treatment program. In some cases, there can be some serious problems specifically associated with addiction and senior citizens.

drug treatment programs for senior citizens are specifically designed to factor in the additional health issues that sometimes accompany seniors with long standing addiction problems entering treatment.

Drug Treatment for Women

Drug treatment programs for women are specifically targeted toward the particular treatment needs of women afflicted with drug addiction and alcoholism. Drug addiction in women has a distinctive origin, progression, and specific addiction treatment methods. A growing body of research shows that drug abuse among women and the issues surrounding their addiction differs from that of men, requiring a specialized regimen of drug treatment.

Psychologically, women who become addicted to drugs or alcohol have a different narrative and profile than men who become addicted. As an often-underestimated rule, women have a greater tendency to have developed a drug addiction to cope with trauma and emotional pain. Women also have a range of social and cultural pressures and issues that men do not experience.

For many years, drug treatment programs were designed to offer simultaneous treatment to both men and women. And since the numbers of admissions favored men, approximately 60% to 40%, the programs were tailored more toward the male population. But recently, it has been discovered that by creating drug rehabs specifically for women, there is a greater chance that a woman would seek treatment. This is a huge step forward in the treatment of women suffering with drug addiction and alcoholism.

Drug Rehab Centers for Men

Drug rehab centers for men focus on the specific treatment needs that the male gender requires when dealing with drug addiction and alcoholism. Substance abuse pertaining to men can have various distinctions that differ than that of substance abuse in females. Some men require individualized drug rehabilitation methods that deal with these distinctions and focus on the issues that relate to the male gender.

Men suffering with drug or alcohol addiction experience different social pressures, cultural pressures and emotional issues than that of women. Also, men deal with their issues, trauma's and transgressions in a different way than women do. It is unnderstood that men and women can be completely different in the way that they think, act, and communicate. This is why drug rehab centers that are designed specifically for men can better increase the chances of a successful recovery and offer a brand new life to addicted males who are committed to recovery.

Drug Treatment Programs For Criminal Justice Clients

It is common for criminal justice clients to be involved in some form of substance abuse. Providing effective addiction treatment to criminal justice clients with substance abuse issues can present special challenges because of the complexity and severity of the biopsychosocial problems which frequently accompany their addiction.

Fortunately, drug rehabilitation is sometimes part of the criminal justice system. People convicted of minor drug offenses may be sentenced to a drug treatment program as an alternative to jail or prison. Some drug treatment programs for criminal justice clients provide help getting to and from any court appointments and provide required services for those on parole or probation, including regular progress updates and random drug screening.

Drug Rehab Centers That Accept Medicaid

Getting treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism is important to everyone. If you can't afford to pay for a drug rehab center right now, Medicaid can make it possible for you to get the care that you need so that you can rehabilitate successfully and recover from addiction.

Medicaid is available only to certain low-income individuals and families who fit into an eligibility group that is recognized by federal and state law. Medicaid does not pay money to you; instead, it sends payments directly to the drug rehab center. Depending on state's rules in New York, you may also be asked to pay a small part of the cost (co-payment) for some addiction treatment services.

Many groups of people are covered by Medicaid. Even within these groups, though, certain requirements must be met. These may include your age, whether you are pregnant, disabled, blind, or aged; your income and resources (like bank accounts, real property, or other items that can be sold for cash); and whether you are a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant. The rules for counting your income and resources vary from state to state and from group to group.

Your child may be eligible for coverage if he or she is a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant, even if you are not (however, there is a 5-year limit that applies to lawful permanent residents). Eligibility for children is based on the child's status, not the parent's. Also, if someone else's child lives with you, the child may be eligible even if you are not because your income and resources will not count for the child.

In general, you should apply for Medicaid if your income is low and you match one of the descriptions of the Eligibility Groups. (Even if you are not sure whether you qualify, if you or someone in your family needs drug treatment or any other health care and you cannot afford it, you should apply for Medicaid and have a qualified New York caseworker evaluate your situation.)

Drug Rehab Centers That Accept Medicare

Medicare insurance pays for substance abuse treatment for people 65 or older with addiction problems that qualify for Medicare.

Many elderly drug abusers arrive at a drug rehab center program only after their addiction has wrecked everything good they ever had in their lives. Without any money in their pocket and with no support from friends and family, it can be extremely difficult to pay for a drug rehab program. In this case an effective course of action if you are 65 or older would be through the use of Medicare, chances are you would be able to get the treatment that you need through the Medicare system.

Drug Treatment Programs That Accept Private Health Insurance

The cost of drug treatment programs for drug addiction and alcoholism treatment are increasing. Both outpatient drug treatment programs and residential drug rehab programs come at a cost that most people who are caught in the grips of drug or alcohol addiction cannot afford. Most private insurance policies provide for at least a percentage of coverage for substance abuse treatment.

It is a sad fact that, even though a drug treatment program takes insurance, many who need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse are statistically less likely to have any medical insurance coverage at all. It is estimated that 15 percent of adults over the age of 18 have no coverage at all and that 30 percent rely solely upon government and federally funded health coverage services like Medicaid and Medicare. Surveys show that approximately 31 percent of people who felt they needed treatment for drug addiction or alcoholism could not enroll in a drug rehab program due to lack of finance and insurance coverage.

Self Pay Drug Treatment Programs

When you or a loved one is overwhelmed by alcohol and drug abuse, we know that you want help fast. You're in an emotional tailspin, and need people and a place you can trust. You want assurance that the program you choose will offer the best chance of success. You want compassionate experts and a hassle-free process to help make one of the hardest decisions of your life a whole lot easier.

Self pay drug treatment programs offer a viable alternative to private medical insurance and are becoming increasingly popular. Having the choice of self pay drug treatment programs gives the individual the opportunity to pay the treatment costs in full. This does not necessarily mean that financial assistance is not offered; simply that self pay is an acceptable payment method. To find out more about self pay drug treatment program options please contact them directly. Also, don't hesitate to request information from more than one facility.

Drug addiction and abuse is one of the major concerns in the United States and other countries. Self pay drug treatment programs are crucial for those with drug abuse problems, to educate them about the facts about chemical dependency and help them make important changes in their lives to lead a drug free lifestyle. Drug treatment typically involves counseling and behavioral therapy coupled with group therapy, lectures and group discussions, to help those in recovery cope with their addiction. The success rates of self pay drug treatment programs are pretty high and most individuals attending self pay drug treatment programs are able to attain and maintain prolonged abstinence from drugs.

Drug Rehab Centers With Payment Assistance

The growing costs of drug rehabilitation is staggering. Surveys show that many individuals who need treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism aren't getting it due to the costs involved with drug rehabilitation and counseling. For that reason, many never even step foot into a drug rehab center even though there are a number of options available for payment assistance. For some, it is difficult to admit that they require financial assistance when it comes to seeking treatment for addiction. However, many drug rehab centers even some private rehabs offer payment assistance to those who are struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism. Most drug rehabilitation organizations will request that those seeking financial assistance or reduced payments investigate all avenues before providing payment assistance. Typically, when all other avenues have been exhausted, consideration for payment assistance will be made.
