Substance Abuse Treatment
Considering Substance Abuse Treatment?
Substance abuse and addiction are part of “behavioral health” and are just as important as physical health problems. If you have a Provider One card and Medicaid coverage (Apple Health), your treatment is free if you go to a contracted provider offering Medicaid services. Please see a list of our contracted providers in the attachment below. If you have purchased insurance or your employer provides insurance, check with your insurance company for the cost of copayments, deductibles, and if there are in-network providers.
Chemical dependency services include brief screening, chemical dependency assessment, detoxification, sobering, outpatient treatment for adults and youth, and opiate substitution therapy (Methadone or Suboxone). We have service providers who specialize in the needs of people who have both a substance abuse problem and a mental health diagnosis. Parents with Medicaid coverage can access free childcare services while they are in treatment. If you are pregnant or an intravenous drug user, you have high priority in the Medicaid system for accessing immediate treatment services.
