Drug and Alcohol Detox & Rehab Centers Covered by Medicaid in South Dakota

Within the state of South Dakota, Medicaid is currently accepted at some drug treatment facilities, which all offer different forms of drug rehabilitation. The South Dakota Medicaid office provides free or low-cost health insurance options for people who are eligible in South Dakota. Medicaid health insurance will help pay for inpatient drug rehab, outpatient treatment, detox, medication maintenance or management, and different types of counseling or therapy.

When someone in South Dakota uses Medicaid to treat a substance abuse disorder, Medicaid will pay the service provider directly and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or a co-payment to the drug treatment center. Not every drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in South Dakota will be able to accept Medicaid health insurance. Anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction in the state can contact the local Medicaid office to find out what drug treatment facilities in the state take Medicaid. Because of how destructive addiction can be; many addicts are unable to afford drug treatment and may have to rely on Medicaid to pay for treatment.
