Texas Children's Health Plan Alcohol Rehab Coverage
Alcohol abuse can be a terrible vice, one that not only harms you but also the people around you. The most commonly abused addictive substance in the U.S., the World Health Organization found in a 2011 study that alcohol is responsible for more deaths in the world than AIDS, tuberculosis, or violence. Texas Children's Health Plan alcohol rehab coverage is available to help you or a loved one overcome alcohol addiction before tragedy strikes.
Alcohol Rehab Coverage Varies
The Texas Children's Health Plan, which provides government-sponsored free and low-cost health insurance for people who have low incomes, provides drug abuse services to members in several policy areas. Texas Children's Health Plan alcohol rehab coverage provides a variety of these services, with the type and length of time of treatment depending on members' individual policies.

If you or a loved one needs drug rehab and is a member of the Texas Children's Health Plan, the plan may require the patient to receive services at a treatment center within the plan network. The specific policy may cover only a portion of the treatment, and the member could potentially be asked to pay for the remainder out of pocket. A drug rehabilitation center may offer a payment plan so patients can get treatment recommended for them without having to shell out a large amount of money at one time.
Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment
Whether a patient receives inpatient or outpatient treatment depends on the severity of the addiction, medical advice and the insurance policy. Alcohol rehab coverage in a residential treatment facility is the best option for many alcohol abusers, as it places them in a safe environment, free from temptation of alcohol availability and connection with people whom the abuser connects with drinking. They also benefit from all-day, every-day access to professional services and connection to peers who can understand their experiences and provide support, both in group therapy and social activities.
For people who are already handling the temptation of alcohol availability, or can't get away for inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment may be an acceptable choice. They would still benefit from individual and group therapy and by going to meetings in their community.
Beat Alcohol Addiction for Yourself and Those You Love
Domestic violence, depression, suicide, vehicular manslaughter, unemployment — these are all preventable things that can be directly or indirectly caused by alcohol abuse and that can hurt many people. Getting help for alcohol addiction will not only make the abuser and his or her loved ones happier, it will also make people safer.
