Do Drug Rehab Centers Accept Insurance?

Addiction Insurance

In 1987, the American Medical Association declared addiction a disease, changing the lives of many abusers who longed for recovery, but could not afford it. Classifying it as a disease gave insurance companies the ability to start covering recovery services. There are many rehab facilities that take insurance and will help you through that process.

The Benefits of Rehab Insurance

Rehab facilities that take insurance provide a great service not only to the patients in recovery and their friends and family. They also benefit the community as a whole, because addiction treatment actually cuts overall medical expenditures.

For example, a California Alcohol and Drug Treatment Assessment indicated that treatment of 150,000 substance users would cost about $209 million. The medical expenditure savings during treatment and for the following year would be $1.5 billion.

Treatment Services and Rehab Insurance

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 mandates that insurance companies must balance drug and alcohol treatment for group plans. Whether an individual has public, private, or group insurance, the possibility of seeking treatment and enrolling in a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program has never been easier.

Some of the treatment services that may be covered by rehab insurance and help patients attain sobriety success are:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Art, Psychodrama, Music & Mood, Horticulture, & Equine Therapy
  • EMDR
  • Spiritual Practices
