  • For people struggling with substance use disorder, it can be hard to reach out for help. However, there are many treatment options in Nebraska, from Omaha to Lincoln, for you or a loved one to live well and substance-free.

    How To Find & Choose Addiction Treatment In Nebraska

    If you’re a Nebraska resident, the first step is to gather more information on the drug and alcohol rehab options that are available to you. 

    The Nebraska Division of Behavioral Health works to provide Nebraska residents with the information and resources they need to begin the process of recovery. 

    Some options to start finding alcohol or drug addiction treatment include: 

    • reaching out to a treatment provider directly to learn more about their programs
    • calling Nebraska’s Division of Behavioral Health
    • using the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Behavioral Health Treatment Locator

    As you collect information on different treatment options, it can be tough to decide which treatment facility is the right choice. Consider some of the following factors to help you narrow down your options: 

    • individualized treatment plans: choose a rehab facility that has the ability to create a treatment plan catered to your needs
    • evidence-based services: work with a treatment facility that provides treatment proven effective for people with addiction
    • family involvement: you may want to choose a treatment center that allows family members and love ones to be a part of your treatment plan
    • co-occurring disorders: if you have a mental health disorder in addition to substance use disorder, it’s important to choose a facility that can treat multiple conditions
    • continuum of care: working with the same clinicians and staff from start to finish can help you build trusting therapeutic relationships

    Nebraska Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Most people who go through treatment for drug and/or alcohol addiction begin with a medical detox program before moving on to an inpatient or outpatient rehab program.  

    After your inpatient or outpatient treatment ends, it’s important to follow an aftercare plan that can provide the ongoing support you need to maintain your recovery. 

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detoxification In Nebraska

    The first step of successful recovery is often a medical detox. Going through detox at home can be uncomfortable and dangerous. 

    When you go through medical detox, you’ll work closely with a treatment team who will monitor your well-being during withdrawal. At the end of your detox, you’ll be fully prepared to take on inpatient or outpatient rehab.

    Inpatient/Residential Treatment In Nebraska

    Residential programs offer a way to fully focus on recovery, away from the pressure and triggers of day-to-day life. During inpatient treatment, you’ll get exposure to several treatment services. 

    You’ll also connect with others who are at a similar stage in recovery. Addiction can feel lonely, but inpatient rehab provides comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your journey towards health and wellness.

    Outpatient Addiction Treatment In Nebraska

    Many people aren’t able to attend inpatient drug treatment. Thankfully, outpatient treatment can be just as successful. 

    During outpatient treatment, you’ll commute to the facility and receive services geared to your needs. You may participate in an intensive outpatient program or a partial hospitalization program

    Medication-Assisted Treatment

    Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, combines behavioral therapy with medication to help you manage some of the issues that make it hard to recover from opioid or alcohol addiction. 

    Aftercare Support

    When you finish your treatment, the process of recovery is just getting started. Your rehab program will help you develop an aftercare plan that may include: 

    • 12-step meetings
    • individual therapy
    • group therapy
    • nutrition and exercise plans
    • case management

    Using Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Nebraska

    It’s important to consider how you’ll pay for treatment. If you have insurance, including Medicaid/Medicare, your treatment may be partially or fully covered. 

    Reach out to your insurance provider by calling the number on your insurance card to learn more about your plan. You can also reach out to a drug rehab center directly, or talk with your healthcare provider about in-network options. 

    If You Don’t Have Insurance

    If you don’t have health insurance you may want to take advantage of state-funded options. Nebraska provides state-funded inpatient and outpatient rehab options for those who cannot afford treatment.
