Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in the state of South Dakota are located all over the state, and in the different counties where addicts can seek out useful drug treatment services and resources. Many of these drug treatment resources in the state can accept different forms of health insurance coverage. This type of health insurance coverage includes Beacon Health Options Insurance (previously known as Value Options), which provides benefit packages to many large companies and organizations throughout the United States. These benefit packages can help cover drug and alcohol treatment, as in many cases these types of programs can come at some cost, or may be private. Drug and alcohol treatment services in the state include residential and outpatient programs that will also include detox programs and medical detox services, both of which can handle all cases of addiction and substance abuse.
