Throughout the state of South Dakota, people battling different forms of substance abuse do have drug treatment options to choose from. Many addicts and their families will fall back onto drug rehab programs that are able to accept health insurance, which can help cover certain costs involved with drug treatment programs. In the state of South Dakota, there are a couple of different drug and alcohol rehab centers that are able to accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurance, and this will help cover the cost of drug rehab. The drug rehab centers offered provide outpatient and residential drug treatment, which can be done on a long-term and short-term basis. Opiate addicts have options of receiving Buprenorphine treatment and detox that can help opiate addicts through the difficult withdrawal process. Detox services are available along with medical detox for more severe cases of addiction; some very specific programs are provided for addicts who are caught up in the criminal justice system, and those addicts who may have been charged with a DUI or a DWI.
