Addiction Recovery for Military Personnel in Alaska:

If you are active or retired military in Alaska, then you have probably have Tricare to help cover your medical expenses. Luckily if you or one of your dependents are struggling with addiction, Tricare can provide substantial or possibly total coverage for treatment expenses. Although military personnel in Alaska usually get the highest coverage at on-base military hospitals and clinics, sometimes the care you need isn’t available on-base. When this happens you can get a referral for civilian treatment, even if the facility you choose is outside your Tricare network.

Using Tricare To Cover Treatment at Tree House Recovery:

Tree House Recovery has facilities in Oregon and California that have helped hundreds of veterans and active-duty military recover from addiction. Our program combines military-based team-building exercises, daily physical training, and mental interventions to create the best scientifically driven treatment for addiction. The quickest way to figure out the exact cost of your treatment is to call (503) 850-2474 and let us check your benefits.
