On April 1, 2017, Virginia’s Medicaid program launched an enhanced its substance use disorder treatment benefit Addiction and Recovery Treatment Services (ARTS). The ARTS benefit provides treatment for those with substance use disorders across the state and also expands access to a comprehensive continuum of addiction treatment services for all citizens enrolled in Medicaid, FAMIS, FAMIS MOMS and the Governor’s Access Plan (GAP).  The benefit includes expanded community-based addiction and recovery treatment services and coverage of in-patient detoxification and residential substance use disorder treatment.
