Mental health services offer support for people with mental illness or mental health difficulties. There are many different conditions that are recognized as mental illnesses. Some of the most common mental illnesses include: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), chronic anxiety disorder, major depression, mania, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Some drug rehab programs offering mental health services also provide services for eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating problems. Medication treatment and monitoring, psychotherapy, psychosocial treatment such as cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, peer support groups and other community services are common components of a drug rehab providing mental health services. Attending a mental health services facility can not only help individuals find a clear path to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, but also provide hope and understanding for those affected by mental health disorders.
Drug and alcohol abuse day programs offer recovering drug addicts flexible and effective treatment. This form of drug rehabilitation is based on a structured non-residential substance abuse treatment modality. Each person's schedule is created around his or her individualized needs.
Drug and alcohol abuse day programs are a minimal or less intense form of drug rehabilitation, but serves as a middle road between inpatient and outpatient rehab. Some day treatment programs operate seven and a half hours a day, six days a week. Others may operate five days a week, three hours a day, and include childcare. Drug and alcohol day treatment accommodates clients who need more than outpatient drug rehab but do not require the supervision and intensity of residential treatment or other types of inpatient rehab.
For those who require slightly less structure than a "live in" facility, a drug and alcohol abuse day program may be the appropriate level of care. Clients attend groups during the day at the day treatment program. Day treatment programs often follow the same schedule as residential clients. However, they are free to return home at the end of the day unlike those attending residential treatment. This treatment modality provides structure and support while helping the client begin integrating back into his or her daily life.
Drug and alcohol abuse day treatment programs are effective for addicts who need more guidance towards recovery with longer sessions and extended periods of support from groups and counselors. Generally, this kind of drug program is favored among those who have a safe, sober environment to return to at the end of the day. Many adults with a spouse and children opt for this kind of treatment because it will still allow them to be a part of family life before and after day treatment. While this is a valuable resource for recovery, it is not a good "fit" for all situations.
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.
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 Alabama, 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 an 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 an 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 Alabama caseworker evaluate your situation.)
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.
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.
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.
