Drug and alcohol addiction is different for each person. Generally, treatment is tailored to the individual needs. DRS recommends residential drug rehab because it provides more structure, stability, and routine. However, the costs are much higher, yet health insurance does cover some of this. According to SAMHSA, over ten of the programs take Medicaid, while over 15 of them accept private health insurance.

Our directory provides a comprehensive list of substance use treatment programs throughout the state. Contact one of our addictions counselors for more information, or consult our directory for specific details. Our professionals are committed to helping you find the proper treatment.

TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Tennessee 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take long or short walks, exercise, hike, go jogging or running.
  • Utilize free or open behavioral health counseling or contact Tennessee 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience Graceland, Ijams Nature Center, museums, historical sites, and state parks.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse—discover what your triggers are and stay aware.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or the Tennessee Department of Substance Abuse Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Region Overdose Prevention Specialists.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at state and local levels.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

Long Term Drug Rehab Nashville

The professional opinion of DRS is that long-term treatment has proven to be the most effective for rehabilitation and life-long sobriety—here are some reasons why:

  • You need help in Nashville that only long-term drug and alcohol rehab can provide.
  • You are chronically ill and need medical treatment during rehabilitation. Long-term programs provide more help.
  • Some individuals have lost their homes because of drug use. Long-term residential treatment provides ample time to rebuild.

Overall, there are limited long-term rehabilitation options in Nashville. DRS recommends considering other cities in Tennessee. However, every situation is different from the next. Our qualified professionals will help you find the right help.

Cost of Treatment in Nashville, Tennessee

The cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Tennessee varies and depends on several factors. Initially, there are differences in cost between private and government-funded drug rehabilitation. In addition, long-term drug rehab costs more than short-term substance use treatment. Finally, residential drug rehab programs are generally more costly than outpatient drug rehab.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Nashville

Tennessee Medicaid covers drug and alcohol rehabilitation. For example, this may include outpatient treatment, residential drug rehab, and detox. Generally, when you use Medicaid to pay for treatment, payment is made directly to the treatment center. Medicaid is designed for low-income families and individuals who qualify.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Nashville

Another option to consider is private health insurance. Most individuals have health insurance through an employer. The extent of coverage depends on the health insurance plans. Coverage may include outpatient drug rehab, residential treatment, and detox.

It is best to contact your health insurance provider and the drug rehab center directly. Tennessee has a federally run exchange. The exchange offers individuals and families in Tennessee an opportunity to enroll in self-purchased (as opposed to employer-sponsored) health plans.

The following insurers offer marketplace coverage in Tennessee:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee
  • Cigna
  • Oscar
  • Bright
  • Celtic/Ambetter
  • UnitedHealthcare

Paying for treatment when uninsured

There are some hurdles when paying for substance use treatment without health insurance. However, it is pretty standard for residential and outpatient drug rehab centers to offer payment plan options, sliding-fee scales, or discounted prices through federal or state programs.

Contact one of our qualified addictions professionals or the drug rehab center for more information on paying for treatment.

DRS’ Evaluation of Nashville, Tennessee

After reviewing state statistics and options available for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation in Nashville, DRS discovered the following pros and cons:

Pros

  • Despite an overall aversion to Obamacare, Tennessee’s population has seen improved health insurance coverage under the healthcare reform law.
  • There is a good ratio of drug detox centers to other drug rehab programs within the state.
  • Most of Nashville’s drug and alcohol treatment centers offer outpatient treatment, making it easier to find immediate help.
  • There is a good ratio of long-term drug rehab programs within the city.

Cons

  • Tennessee can be counted among the states with higher uninsured rates and persisting resistance to the Affordable Care Act.
  • Transitional housing and aftercare support are limited, making it challenging to access follow-up care.
  • Just under half of the drug rehab centers in Nashville accept Medicaid.

Considering the small number of drug and alcohol treatment resources within the city, there are excellent options to choose from. However, some families and individuals may find it challenging to find affordable drug rehab.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
