Beacon Health Options has a network of over 115,000 providers that span all 50 states, meaning they cover rehab in Rhode Island and other parts of the country.

What Types of Addiction Treatments Are Covered by Beacon in Rhode Island?

Beacon can help pay for all levels of addiction treatment in Rhode Island, depending on your specific plan and what treatment program your doctor recommends.

Common levels of addiction treatment include:4

  • Detox can help patients withdraw from certain substances (e.g., alcohol, benzodiazepines) while under the care of medical professionals. This helps patients remain as comfortable and safe as possible during withdrawal and can ease the transition into a formal treatment program.
  • Inpatient rehab involves living full-time at a facility. This allows patients to receive 24-hour care, monitoring, and support, helping them focus on their recovery.
  • Outpatient rehab involves patients living at home and attending treatment for a few hours a week. Outpatient care can vary in duration and intensity.
  • Aftercare is recommended after patients complete a formal treatment program. It is designed to support long-term recovery and can include attending group meetings or living in a sober living home.

Does Beacon Cover Co-Occurring Addiction and Mental Health Disorders?

As a behavioral health provider, Beacon Health Options does cover co-occurring addiction and mental health concerns. The amount of coverage will depend on your specific plan. If you struggle with both mental health and substance use, it’s important to get integrated treatment that addresses both to maximize your chance of long-term recovery.5
