The best drug rehab centers provide accessible, effective treatment to those struggling with addiction. When searching for a rehab program, finding one that is affordable is vital. At BrightView, we understand that accessibility and affordability are crucial for our patients, which is why we accept Medicaid. For more information about our services, call us today at 833-510-4357.


How to find a drug rehab that accepts Medicaid

Although insurance companies must offer coverage for addiction treatment, this does not mean that every coverage program will be accepted everywhere. Knowing how to find a Medicaid drug rehab in your area can help. Here are some tips to follow to find one:

  • REACH OUT: If there is a treatment center in mind, reach out and ask if they accept Medicare or Medicaid. Most rehabs will verify if certain insurances are accepted or not.
  • CONTACT MEDICAID: Call Medicaid and ask which drug rehabs your plan will cover.
  • SAMHSA LOCATOR TOOL: Use the treatment locator tool on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website. It allows users to search by location, payment options, and type of treatment.


Paying for Rehab with Medicaid

Medicaid is a state and federal-funded health insurance program that provides coverage for families that qualify as low-income. Having certain disabilities or being a caretaker of an individual who qualifies also makes individuals eligible for Medicaid.

Some of the costs of drug addiction treatment covered by Medicaid include screenings, medication for addiction treatment (MAT), counseling, therapy, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, and residential treatment.


How can BrightView help?

Great addiction treatment centers, like BrightView, offer comprehensive programs that address the needs of the whole person. Important components of our recovery program include:

  • OUTPATIENT SERVICES: At BrightView, we offer outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment allows patients to continue their routine while receiving treatment.
  • MEDICATION FOR ADDICTION TREATMENT (MAT): MAT combines medication with behavioral therapies. Medication helps minimize withdrawal symptoms and cravings while also stabilizing the brain. At BrightView, we offer Suboxone, Sublocade (at some centers), Methadone (at some centers), and Vivitrol.
  • BEHAVIORAL THERAPIES & COUNSELING: Individual counseling helps patients uncover their personal needs and the root cause of their substance use disorder (SUD). Group therapy allows patients to build life skills together while sharing their stories.
  • CASE MANAGEMENT: Case management helps patients get their feet back on the ground. These services support patients with housing, transportation, job training, education, and more.
  • AFFORDABILITY: We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and all commercial insurance. Our goal is to remove barriers to rehab, including cost.
