Within the state of Alaska are few drug and alcohol treatment centers that will accept Medicaid. These facilities are located all over the state and all providing different types of treatment. Medicaid is a health insurance program that is designed to help families in low-income brackets, elderly persons, people with disabilities, and pregnant women. Medicaid covers many people in Alaska, and people requiring help for substance abuse problems can access Medicaid inpatient long-term rehab or outpatient drug rehab services in Alaska.

When someone enrolls in a drug treatment program that accepts Medicaid, the payments for treatment will be sent to the service provider directly. Because Medicaid is different in each state, some patients may have to pay an out-of-pocket cost often referred to as a co-payment. Medicaid may cover some or all the costs, but this will be different in each state. Drug and alcohol problems impact many people living in the larger cities and communities in Alaska, and it can at times be difficult to get the help that is needed. Many families who have Medicaid in Alaska will rely on this insurance to help pay for drug treatment.
