Kansas Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs

Kansas currently has nearly 10,000 patients enrolled in over 200 different substance abuse treatment programs. Patients receive a substance use disorder assessment to determine which level of care is best for their needs.

The diversity of treatment options available in Kansas helps to meet you where you are in recovery. At an accredited rehab center, program options range from detox to aftercare services and support.

Medical Drug & Alcohol Detoxification

Medical detox is a short-term program that helps you manage uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. After you cleanse your body of drugs or alcohol, you’ll be both mentally and physically prepared from an outpatient or inpatient treatment program.

Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

Residential treatment places you in an inpatient center where you receive 24/7 treatment services from a range of professionals. Treatment services may include group therapy, behavioral therapy, wellness programs, psychiatric care, and more.

Outpatient Programs

Outpatient programs let you go home after each treatment session but provide counseling and therapy at different levels of intensity. Outpatient services include intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial hospitalization programs.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses a combination of behavioral therapy and medications to help you recover from opioid or alcohol addiction. Approved medications include methadone, Suboxone, naltrexone, and others.

Aftercare Support

Aftercare in Kansas focuses on preventing relapse. Although services may vary, aftercare routinely features support groups, outpatient counseling, 12-step programs, sober-living housing, and more.

Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Kansas

Kansas has an extensive insurance market with programs that will pay for your addiction treatment. However, not all rehab centers will take every insurance option.

To find out if you plan covers treatment, you can:

  • call the number on your insurance card
