About TRICARE for Drug Rehab

TRICARE is a health insurance program that provides comprehensive coverage for active and retired uniformed service members and their families. TRICARE is managed and overseen by the Defense Health Agency, and offers health plans that meet the requirements for minimum coverage as enforced under the Affordable Care Act.

Those who have TRICARE and who need help recovering from drug and alcohol abuse may receive partial or full coverage for the following addiction treatment services:

  • Inpatient residential drug and alcohol rehab,
  • Medical detox,
  • Medication-assisted treatment,
  • Opioid treatment,
  • Dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders treatment,
  • Partial hospitalization programs, and
  • Intensive outpatient programs.

TRICARE only covers addiction treatment services that are medically necessary, which means the services must be proven, reasonable, appropriate, and sufficient for treating your condition. TRICARE does not provide coverage for aversion therapy or unproven addiction treatments.

Using TRICARE for Medical Drug Detox

TRICARE covers detoxification services for those withdrawing from drugs and alcohol. Detoxification, also known as medical detox, helps you safely withdraw from substances so you face a reduced risk for related complications such as seizures, dehydration, and malnutrition.

Those with TRICARE who suffer from opioid use disorder may also qualify to receive medication-assisted treatment—a detox method that involves the use of medications like buprenorphine that relieve or eliminate opioid withdrawal symptoms. This option is ideal for those who need medical support without close monitoring and 24-hour care, and who are receiving treatment from a TRICARE authorized provider that has certification from the DEA to prescribe buprenorphine.

Using TRICARE for Inpatient Drug Rehab

TRICARE covers inpatient residential treatment that takes place in safe, highly-structured, 24-hour medical environments. Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab offers a range of therapies that treat co-occurring mental health disorders like depression, and that help you modify behaviors and thought processes that may be driving your addiction. Inpatient drug rehab is ideal for those who need help establishing healthy daily routines after having structured their lives around drug and alcohol use.

TRICARE may cover some or all costs associated with inpatient drug rehab for those who meet the following criteria:

  • Being over 21 years of age,
  • Being unable to function in the community with outpatient rehab,
  • Do not require full-time hospitalization,
  • Suffer from a co-occurring disorder such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder, and
  • Suffer from a serious impairment that interferes with day-to-day functioning.
