what is necessary for a drug/alcohol treatment program to accept insurance in South Carolina?

Mr. Bibb,

Normally calling your insurance company, or going to their website will give you information that will lead to more knowledge about your coverage and if alcohol/drug treatment programs are covered. Also, browsing treatment programs online, and making a few calls can determine if certain treatment programs accept your insurance. If your insurance doesn't cover treatment, there are non-profit programs that will charge according to a "household income" sliding scale. Outpatient programs are another option, as are AA, and SMART programs. Regardless of insurance, sobriety is invaluable and an investment in your life. What are you worth? How much money did you spend on alcohol/drugs getting to this point? Being in Florida and not savvy of the laws in South Carolina I wish you all the best.
