TriCare Coverage for Addiction Treatment 

If you are watching a loved one struggle with substance abuse, or you notice substance abuse and dependency symptoms in yourself, there is a way out. Seeking substance abuse treatment from a leading drug rehab center such as Coastal Detox is the best way to put substance abuse in the past and focus on a bright, happy and sober future.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that over 20 million Americans struggle each year with addiction issues that include the dependency on illicit drugs, and only 2 million of those people receive the substance abuse treatment they need. Fortunately, those who are covered under most TRICARE health care coverage have easy, affordable access to the highest level of substance abuse treatment available.

It’s also estimated by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) that drug use in the United States costs the economy about $18 billion dollars each year due to the impact it has on health, crime and productivity. Substance abuse is painful to those who suffer, and the costs of the toll it takes on yourself and loved one is pale in comparison.

Understanding what we currently know about substance abuse, that it is a chronic disease that changes the way users process pleasure and happiness. TriCare coverage can provide better substance abuse treatments and therapies to those in need of help.

TriCare coverage is a world-class healthcare program that supports the military mission by fostering, protecting, sustaining and restoring physical and mental health.

Do you Struggle With Substance Abuse? TRICARE has the Coverage you Need

Opioid overdose deaths are on the rise, the Department of Defense (DOD) continues to expand access for coverage to include medical treatments for substance abuse. This includes medication assisted treatments, and other mental health services.

Although the number of military members abusing substances is lower than the national average, substance abuse is also a problem for TriCare beneficiaries.

TriCare provides a wide range of coverage in effective addiction treatment for substance abuse. In recent years, the DOD expanded the availability and coverage of substance abuse and medication assisted treatment services. This was to provide patient centered, evidence based prevention and substance abuse treatment.

This is the top tier Rehab/Detox center in Southeast FL. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. Their attention to detail is impressive. They specialize in treating alcohol abuse among several other conditions. If you or a loved one are looking for a blueprint on how to sober up…Coastal Detox will lead you there.

My experience with Coastal has been one of empathy, kindness and family. From Admissions to Nurses to techs I have never felt so cared for. Food and drink 24/7. Coastal is a place I went twice. First time 14 days next 6days later for another 11. At 59 and umpteen detoxes Coastal by far is Heaven Sent! As a Nutritionist and Trainer, I'm so happy to be back....the Mary ,who was lost:)

Great place . Helped me so much I am a 64 year old woman and this place got me sober with dignity and kindness. I highly recommend it plus the food is incredible. Rooms are really well laid out. 2 guys to a room . Each bed has its own t.v with head sets so you dont bother your roomate. Take an extra pillow and comfort blanket from home. At least 3 pairs of pj’ s sock and shoes and comfortable clothing fit. You do your own laundry there. I will send you the link to look at. After thinking all morning this is hands down the place for you. Lots of young people and fantastic therapists. For my wonderful son who suffers. From addiction the way I do.
