There are programs accessible in certain states for residents to get treatment for a substance abuse disorder with resources offered by state financed health insurance, other than Medicaid. State financed health insurance plans which pay for drug and alcohol rehabilitation usually offer these services in state run facilities, and the population group most often targeted to receive this type of coverage through state health insurance are people who are homeless, living under the poverty level in that state, have income that meets the requirement to be covered by the state plan, and those people who don't have Medicaid or any other type of insurance. In most instances, addiction treatment paid for by state financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid is completely free.
State financed health insurance plans, other than Medicaid, which cover drug and alcohol treatment typically provide a small range of services but may provide services that include detox and emergency intervention services to help the individual quit using as quickly and safely as possible. This may consist of a safe and stable inpatient or residential rehabilitation program, with options to transition into sober living facilities or comparable aftercare programs which can provide housing and other essentials until the person can get back on their feet and find a way to live and work outside of treatment and sober living.
The services offered by each state providing health insurance plans other than Medicaid may vary and there may be limited availability in some treatment centers, but residents in East Greenwich can contact an administrative office for state financed health plans to determine if they are eligible and what is required to get enrolled in a treatment program right away.
