Tricare Coverage

There are many drug and alcohol treatment options in Hawaii, but a few of these drug treatment services can be covered by Tricare Insurance, which is a civilian-based health benefit plan for military personnel and retirees, along with their families. Treatment programs offer outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation, along with residential services for addicts. Partial hospitalization services are also provided because some addicts may have a difficult time with their withdrawal process, and will require medical supervision and help. Drug and alcohol treatment is very important for members of the military as many of them come back from active duty and have a hard time transitioning back into society, and this can lead some to struggle with drug and alcohol addiction.
