Detox programs with medical supervision or assistance can help ensure that you get through withdrawal safely and receive timely treatment for serious symptoms if needed.


Inpatient addiction treatment programs provide a supervised and supportive environment for severe addiction. These short-term and long-term programs take place in facilities that have 24-hour supervision.

Different levels of treatment are available, such as partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care, and traditional outpatient care.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs offer specialized treatment if you have an alcohol or opioid use disorder. MAT programs include the use of medication, such as buprenorphine or suboxone, as well as behavioral therapy sessions.

How To Pay For Alcohol Or Drug Rehab

Payment for a rehab program involves using an insurance plan. Depending on the amount of coverage you have, you might also have out-of-pocket expenses.
