Arizona Medicaid [AHCCCS] Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in Phoenix

AHCCCS stands for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. If you’re suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol and not already on a Medicaid plan, you will likely qualify for emergency Medicaid. This will allow you to start rehab before getting approved. The Phoenix rehab you choose to admit yourself into will handle the application process.

We understand if you’re already on Medicaid and need treatment but are unsure where to start. Our goal is to help you through the confusion.

That’s why our helpline rings you directly to a specialist who can help locate an AHCCCS treatment center for detox, residential, inpatient, or outpatient treatment.

Getting Emergency AHCCCS for Detox and Rehab


If you find yourself addicted to drugs such as opioids, alcohol, or benzodiazepines, you will likely qualify for emergency AHCCCS. Emergency AHCCCS is reserved for those who are entering detox that cannot wait to go through the process of application and approval.

We work with AHCCCS drug rehabs that can help you through this process. In some cases, you can first be admitted, then the treatment center that you’re admitted to will go through the process of applying for you.
