Drug and alcohol treatment is available in Chester County regardless of insurance. If the person has insurance, they should contact their insurance provider. If the person does not have insurance, or has insurance without behavioral health coverage, they can call their nearest outpatient program. A counselor from the program will meet with them to do an assessment and set up a treatment plan. This could be treatment as an outpatient or a referral to a different service that would best meet their needs such as a residential rehab program. Again, if the person has insurance, they should start by calling the insurance company to find out how to proceed.
