Within the District Capital are many different drug and alcohol rehab programs where addicts can achieve long term sobriety and help for their substance abuse problems. Many of these drug rehab programs in the capital are able to take health insurance, which can cover the cost of drug rehab and treatment. Within Washington D.C. there are a couple of different drug and alcohol rehab programs that are covered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurance, which is a very popular insurance provider in the United States. These drug rehab programs include very specific programs for addicts who may have been caught up in the criminal justice system or may have been charged with a DUI or a DWI because of their addiction. Outpatient and residential drug rehab programs are available and can help treat most forms of addiction for men, women, and teens.
