Can Rehabs in Mississippi Treat My Addiction?

Top Addictions in Mississippi

In 2015, 4,823 people received substance abuse treatment in Mississippi. The top 5 addictions seen in treatment centers were:1

  • Alcohol.
  • Marijuana.
  • Methamphetamine or amphetamines.
  • Other opioids besides heroin.
  • Cocaine.

Even though these are the most common addictions treated in the state, programs are capable of treating many other addictions including heroin, hallucinogens, prescription drugs, and inhalants.

About 24% of programs in Mississippi offer specialized treatment services for people who have experienced domestic violence, and 26% treat people who have experienced sexual abuse. Almost 24% treat pregnant or postpartum women, and 26% offer treatment tailored to young adults.2

AAC’s programs in Mississippi help people deal with all kinds of substance addiction and use different forms of therapy to help people process trauma, including equine therapy and Native American healing. We also tailor therapy to special groups such as young adults, pregnant women, and first responders.

Will Programs Accept My Insurance?

Many programs in Mississippi accept private insurance or can work with you on other payment options. As of 2017, 74% of programs in the state accepted private health insurance, 66% accepted Medicaid, 51% accepted Medicare, 97% accepted cash or self-payment, and 72% offered sliding scale rates.2

Insurance coverage varies by provider and plan. Some plans only cover specific types of treatment or will only cover treatment for a set amount of time.

AAC accepts private insurance and can help you figure out an alternative means of payment if you don’t have insurance. Some people set up payment plans, borrow from their savings, or take out a credit card or loan to pay for treatment.

Our facility is set in a quiet, woodsy area in the hills of North Mississippi.

Our facility is set in a quiet, woodsy area in the hills of North Mississippi. In between their treatment, patients have time to try out our ropes course, play frisbee golf or sand volleyball, go to the gym, or walk around the lake. We serve three meals a day prepared by an executive chef, and we can accommodate special diets. Patients stay in 12-person, age- and gender-specific cabins and sleep in semi-private bedrooms with private bathrooms. Each cabin has a TV and a lounge.

The program combines experiential therapies with group, individual, and family therapies. The therapies improve mental, social, and emotional well-being while helping patients build motivation to change and learn how to recognize destructive thought patterns that can lead to relapse.

For people who are struggling with opioid and alcohol addiction, we also practice medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which is a combination of medications and therapy. It helps to control withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse.

Our program comes with a 90-day brand promise. If you complete 90 days of treatment with us, you can return for a complimentary 30 days of treatment if you relapse.
