Tricare is a health insurance provider that offers comprehensive coverage to all current military personnel, retired military personnel, and family members of those who are either active in the military or who once were. up until fairly recently, physical health services and behavioral health services were considered entirely separate. Most major health insurance providers did not cover behavioral health services like substance abuse treatment and medically monitored detox. After the Affordable Care Act was first developed and passed into law, private insurance companies became required to cover drug addiction treatment and other behavioral health services.
Now, drug addiction treatment programs must be legally certified by insurance providers like Tricare. The addiction recovery services provided by Garden State Treatment Center are certified in full by major providers, making quality clinical care more accessible than ever before.

Drug Abuse Among Military Personnel
Substance abuse and dependency are significant issues for men and women who are currently active in the US military or who have been active in the past. The most common pattern of substance abuse among military personnel is binge drinking, which is defined as consuming five or more alcoholic beverages on one single occasion for men, and four or more alcoholic beverages for women. Heavy drinking has long since been part of the standard military work culture and has been used for both recreation and as a way to self-medicate the intense stressors and emotional issues that tend to go hand-in-hand with serving. Illicit substance use is also not uncommon.
Many service members use drugs like cocaine, prescription medications, and heroin to reduce pain, help in coping with emotional stressors and mental fatigue, and self-medicate other psychological symptoms associated with active combat. Substance abuse is also very common among more veterans. The good news is that help is available and recovery is possible and that many high-quality drug addiction treatment programs like that provided by Garden State Treatment Center are certified in full by major health insurance providers like Tricare.
