There are options available in some states for state residents to get treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction with funding offered by state financed health insurance, other than Medicaid. State financed health insurance plans that cover addiction recovery often provide these services in state run facilities, and the demographic typically targeted to obtain this type of coverage through state health insurance are individuals who are homeless, living under the poverty level in that state, have income that fulfills the requirement to be covered by the state plan, and those people who don't have Medicaid or any other health coverage. In many instances, addiction rehabilitation covered through state financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid is entirely free.
State financed health insurance plans, other than Medicaid, which cover substance abuse rehabilitation often offer a limited scope of services but may provide services that cover detoxification and immediate intervention services to help the person become abstinent as fast and safely as possible. This may be available in a safe and stable inpatient or residential rehabilitation program, with opportunities to then move into sober living facilities or similar programs which can provide housing and other essentials until the individual can get stable and find a way to live and work outside of rehab 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 certain programs, but residents in Tiverton can contact an administrative office for state financed health plans to find out their eligibility and what they need to do to get enrolled in a treatment facility right away.
