Medicaid is a free or low-cost health insurance plan, and it will help cover the costs for someone who needs treatment for a substance abuse disorder.

When Medicaid is used it will pay the service provider directly, and the patient may have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or what is referred to as a co-payment option. Many families in West Virginia who have a loved one struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction will use Medicaid to help pay for drug and alcohol treatment. Not every drug treatment program in West Virginia will be able to take Medicaid, and addicts seeking help with Medicaid can contact the drug rehab centers directly to check to see if they are covered.

He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
