There are rehab alternatives accessible in certain states for state residents to receive rehabilitation for a substance abuse disorder with resources offered by state financed health insurance, other than Medicaid. State financed health insurance plans that pay for substance abuse treatment services often provide these services in state run facilities, and the demographic 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 some other type of insurance. In many cases, addiction rehabilitation paid for by state financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid is completely free.
State financed health insurance plans, other than Medicaid, which cover addiction treatment usually provide a limited range of services but may offer services that cover detoxification and immediate intervention services to help the person quit using as quickly and safely as possible. This may consist of a safe and stable inpatient or residential rehabilitation center, with opportunities to transition into sober living programs or comparable aftercare programs which can provide housing and other necessities until the individual can get back on their feet and find a means to live and work outside of rehab and sober living.
