Treating Opioid Addiction

While prescription opioid pain medications can help treat pain after surgery or an injury, they carry serious risks like addiction. If you or a loved one are struggling with opioid addiction, Medicare covers treatment services that can help.

These services help people with Medicare recover from opioid addiction and include medication coverage (like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone), counseling, drug testing, individual and group therapy, and more. Certain services, like counseling and therapy, are available both in-person and virtually.

The first step is talking with a doctor about treatment options, and where to go to get help. People with Medicare can also visit and select their state to find local treatment programs.
