Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice.
