Does Insurance Pay for Rehab in Oklahoma?
While coverage for treatment can vary depending on your specific insurance plan, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) dictates that all health insurance plans offered through the Health Insurance Marketplace, as well as most individual and employer health plans, cover substance use and mental health services.3
Additional assurance comes from the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), which offers protection to people with mental health and substance use disorders.4 It ensures that plans do not impose unfair limitations for services related to mental health and addiction benefits.5
Along with private and employer health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and Tricare (the latter of which is for uniformed and retired military members) cover many if not all types of substance use treatment in Oklahoma and elsewhere in the United States.6,7
Types of Addiction Treatment in Oklahoma
Since everyone has a unique set of needs, addiction treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Therefore treatment facilities offer various levels of care, as determined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). These levels include:8
- Level 0.5–Prevention and early intervention.
- Level 1–Outpatient services.
- Level 2–Intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization.
- Level 3–Residential/inpatient.
- Level 4–Intensive inpatient.
Treatment and healthcare providers consider each person’s unique situation to determine what level of care is the most appropriate course of treatment. The determination is based on a person’s level of intoxication or withdrawal at the time of assessment, health history and physical needs, mental and emotional health, personal desire for change, relapse potential, and living environment.8
Within these levels of care, various types of treatments and therapies are offered, such as:9
- Behavioral counseling.
- Medical devices/applications to treat withdrawal symptoms or deliver skills training.
- Assessment and treatment of co-occurring mental health issues (e.g., depression and anxiety).
- Long-term recovery options to prevent relapse.
Additionally, some rehabs in Oklahoma and elsewhere offer unique services for particular populations, such as:1
- Veterans/active-duty military.
- Women/pregnant women.
- Members of the LGBTQ+ population.
- Victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence, and/or trauma.
- Adolescents/young adults.
- Patients with co-occurring mental or pain disorders.
- HIV/AIDS patients.
- Patients referred from the criminal justice system.
Once initial treatment is complete, aftercare options can help to support and sustain treatment goals. These include sober living homes, a halfway houses, oxford houses, and community-based housing that centers on addiction recovery.

What Addictions Are Treated at Rehabs in Oklahoma?
Some facilities specialize in one substance or a particular group of substances, such as opioids or alcohol addiction. In Oklahoma, for example, 22 centers identify as opioid treatment facilities as opposed to substance use programs, and 20 facilities indicate that they do not treat for alcohol use disorders.1
That said, many alcohol and drug rehab centers in Oklahoma treat a variety of disorders for substances such as:
In addition to offering drug and alcohol treatment, many facilities also provide treatment for co-occurring disorders, which is when a person experiences a substance use issue and a mental health disorder simultaneously. Treating for both disorders concurrently is imperative, as lack of treatment for one could compromise the treatment progress for the other.17 Within Oklahoma, 120 facilities indicate that they treat for co-occurring disorders.1
