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.

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.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
