Of those, a mere 1.3 million actually received treatment at a facility dedicated to treating alcohol and substance abuse. Don't be a statistic – use your Medical Mutual alcohol rehab coverage to treat your alcohol addiction now.

Getting Help for Your Alcohol Addiction
Your treatment may depend on your Medical Mutual alcohol rehab coverage and the recommendation of your doctor or other licensed healthcare professional, but the following options may apply:
- Inpatient Rehab – Checking into a residential facility distances you from the temptations and distractions of the outside world and gives you a safe place to confront your addiction and build a plan for sober living.
- Outpatient Rehab – Outpatient treatment offers greater flexibility and can be used as the starting point for treatment or as a continuation after being discharged from inpatient care.
- Transitional Housing – Going from inpatient care back to "real life" can be jarring; transitional housing offers support and guidance that helps addicts stay sober while still regaining their independence and easing back into normal daily routines.
- Therapy – Individual and group therapy can both be helpful in addressing negative behaviors and identifying triggers or other issues (depression, bi-polar disorder, other addictions) that could contribute to your alcohol abuse.
