Not every drug and alcohol treatment program will accept Medicaid, but you can go to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website to find out where. The insurance requirements do vary from facility to facility. It is always a good idea to check to see what your rehabilitation facility of choice will accept. Medicaid does provide coverage for different types of services and programs for addicts. Local health programs and addiction treatment services will also provide lists of services that do accept Medicaid.
Medicaid does help alleviate some of the financial burdens with drug and alcohol treatment. Yet, some addicts still struggle to find the help they need. Substance abuse is a dangerous problem that does become worse when it is not treated right away. When you are struggling with a drug or alcohol problem, you should be reaching out for help right away. If you have Medicaid it may provide some good resources for you.
