Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.
