What Types of Addiction Treatment Are Covered by Anthem in Rhode Island?

Anthem covers most levels of addiction treatment in Rhode Island, but the exact amount they cover varies based on different factors. Addiction treatment looks different for everyone. What works for some may not work for others.4 Several treatment approaches help people achieve sobriety. Anthem may cover the following therapeutic interventions to some extent:2,4

  • Detox. Detox is often the first step in recovery before transitioning to another level of care. During detox, your body rids itself of drugs and alcohol. Medical professionals can provide medications to ease cravings and help you through the withdrawal process.
  • Inpatient rehab. With inpatient rehab, you live onsite while in treatment. You receive 24/7 care while participating in different behavioral therapies and peer support groups to develop coping skills.
  • Outpatient rehab. Outpatient programs offer similar care as inpatient rehab, but you can live at home while in recovery. Some standard programs are less structured, while others can require you to attend several hours daily.
  • Aftercare. After completing rehab, ongoing care is recommended. Aftercare might include staying in a sober living home while continuing counseling, 12-Step programs, and outpatient care.

The costs of these services differ, and your level of coverage depends on your specific plan and treatment needs. Different factors, like the severity of your addiction and where you are in your recovery journey, can influence the type of treatment you need. An addiction specialist can help you understand which level of care might work best for you.
