Where Can I Find Medical Detox Centers in Pennsylvania?
In Pennsylvania, there are 284 private non-profit, 211 private for-profit, and 7 government facilities for treating substance abuse.1 Alcohol dependence causes withdrawals when you stop drinking. The symptoms range from mild to life-threatening depending on your level of dependence. Symptoms can include irritability, anxiety, agitation, high blood pressure, raised heart rate, seizures, delirium tremens, and death.2
Avoid going through withdrawals alone. Medical supervision in a detox center treats discomfort as well as medical issues that can become life-threatening. Removing alcohol from your system and managing the acute symptoms of withdrawal is a process called detox.3 Detox programs have physicians on-site who offer around the clock care to help you manage your symptoms.3

State-Funded Insurance (i.e. Medicaid)
Medicaid is a federal healthcare program used by roughly 72 million people.4 Various people qualify, including adults who meet the low-income requirements, children with low-income caretakers, people with certain kinds of disabilities, and the elderly. While Medicaid is funded by the government, each individual state runs a separate Medicaid program.4
Even if you have been turned down for Medicaid in Pennsylvania before, you may be eligible now, particularly if you applied before the Affordable Care Act was passed. The Affordable Care Act raised the maximum income requirements as well as the number of assets you could own and still qualify.
While not all facilities accept Medicaid, 410 of the substance abuse facilities in Pennsylvania, 81.7 percent, do accept money from Medicaid.1
