There are sometimes barriers to seeking treatment for a substance use disorder. One of the most daunting barriers is the cost of treatment. As a result, people struggling with addiction may postpone or not receive the care they need. The Retreat of Atlanta is committed to ensuring people who need treatment can receive it without worrying about the cost.
We offer affordable addiction treatment through our partnerships with insurance companies, such as TRICARE. Because of this, the cost is reduced and our clients can receive the care they need. If someone is seeking a treatment center that accepts TRICARE for detox in Atlanta, The Retreat of Atlanta is here to help.
What is TRICARE?
Tricare is the uniformed services health care program for active duty military, National Guard, Reserves, and their family members. Additionally, retirees and their family members, survivors, and certain former spouses are also covered.
TRICARE connects the healthcare resources of the Military Health System (MHS) with a network of civilian healthcare professionals and institutions. The Military Health System is a global, integrated system. Members can access care from military facilities, a civilian network of providers, or TRICARE-authorized non-network providers.
TRICARE offers many different plans depending on who someone is and where they live. Enrollees can select the plan that best suits their needs. If someone isn’t sure which plan to select, they can use the Plan Finder to help them decide.

Does TRICARE Insurance Cover Mental Health Treatment?
Yes, TRICARE covers mental health treatment. Mental health disorders have a high prevalence of co-occurring with substance use disorders.
TRICARE-covered mental health services fall under similar guidelines as substance use disorder treatment coverage. As such, mental health services and treatments may be subject to exclusion, pre-authorization, certain rules, and limits.
Some of the mental health services TRICARE may cover include:
- Psychological testing and assessment
- Acute inpatient psychiatric care
- Medication management
- Telehealth services
As mentioned above, preauthorization and exclusions may apply. Services must be deemed medically or psychologically necessary. With a dual diagnosis, some mental health and substance use disorder treatments go hand and hand.
At Retreat of Atlanta, we offer comprehensive individualized treatment plans that may be covered by TRICARE. Some of our treatment services include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family counseling
Will I Have a Co-pay or Cost Share With My Tricare Plan?
All TRICARE plans have a maximum allowable charge that TRICARE will pay a provider for a service. Non-participating providers may charge up to 15% over the allowable amount. The allowable rate may vary in some places since healthcare costs can be more or less depending on location. Also, in some cases, federal law requires a set rate.
All TRICARE plans, besides active duty service members, have a cost share. This is the percentage of the covered healthcare service the member must pay. In addition, some plans have a yearly deductible that must be met before TRICARE begins to cost-share.
