Drug and Alcohol Detox & Rehab Centers Covered by Medicaid in Mississippi

Within the state of Mississippi, there are some drug and alcohol treatment programs, which accept Medicaid to help cover the costs of treatment. The Mississippi Medicaid office provides low-cost and free health insurance for people who are eligible for living in Mississippi. Medicaid health insurance can help pay for the cost of drug and alcohol treatment, but the addict should make sure that the service provider they are looking at accepts Medicaid. Not all of the addiction treatment programs in Mississippi will accept Medicaid, and addicts or families are encouraged to contact the local Medicaid office.

An addict who has Medicaid insurance or who wants help can also contact the county's local mental health board for information about the facilities in the state that accepts Medicaid. A substance abuse disorder is difficult to deal with, and many addicts struggle to get the help they need. It can be difficult to pay for drug rehab, and many addicts will have to rely on Medicaid to help pay for their substance abuse treatment. Medicaid will pay the service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment when they attend the facility.
