Medicaid is one of the most common means of state funding for addiction treatment centers. It’s the primary source through which patients with no or limited means get the help they need for their alcohol or drug dependency. Medicaid is an ideal option for those who need alcohol or drug treatment but don’t have any private health insurance.
These programs generally cover detox (medically supervised withdrawal management) as well as outpatient treatment centers. In limited cases, Medicaid may fund inpatient or residential treatment facilities, but outpatient coverage is more common due to the cost differential. Data from Medicaid indicates that nearly 12 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries over 18 suffer from substance use disorder (SUD). If you or your loved one are among these numbers, help is only a phone call away.
What Does My Medicaid Insurance Cover?
Medicaid-funded substance use disorder treatment varies from state to state. Different states have more expansive coverage than others. One universal element of Medicaid coverage, however, is medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder.
To increase access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders (OUD), the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment for Patients and Communities (SUPPORT) Act requires states to provide Medicaid coverage of certain drugs and biological products, and related counseling services and behavioral therapy.
These drugs may include methadone, Suboxone® (buprenorphine and naloxone), or Vivitrol® (monthly injectable naltrexone). Medicaid will also cover behavioral rehab, including group therapy and individualized psychological counseling.

Florida Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers
Florida has an infamous and unfortunate legacy when it comes to substance use and addiction. At one time, it was ground zero for “pill mills” (pain management clinics that wrote opioid prescriptions for profit) and is still battling substance use on a variety of fronts. Cocaine continues to be a problem in Miami while prescription painkiller abuse still dominates many areas of the state, from Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale to Fort Walton Beach. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest rates of overdose deaths, 7,500 overdose deaths in Florida in 2020 compared to just over 5,500 the year before. If you or your loved one are among the thousands in Florida that need help for addiction, there are many resources available to you.
Substance Abuse Treatment Resources in Florida
In response to the explosion of prescription and illicit drug abuse in the state, Florida has given birth to hundreds of treatment facilities, but not all treatment centers will offer the same services or levels of care. Some will offer inpatient treatment and onsite medical detoxification (detox); others will simply offer outpatient counseling and rehab and offsite coordination with detox. The state also offers many treatment facilities that offer Medicare and Medicaid for patients of advanced age or limited financial means. Florida has also become a preferred recovery destination because of the forgiving climate all year round.
