Florida Blue Insurance and New Directions Behavioral Health both help people with drug and alcohol dependency issues overcome their addictions, but in different ways:

  • Florida Blue is the Blue Cross and Blue Shield healthcare insurance plan for residents in Florida. Its in-network partners offer a wide range of treatment options for those who want to start on the road to recovery. Depending on the plan,  Florida Blue can cover the full or partial cost of addiction services.
  • New Directions Behavioral Health is a behavioral healthcare organization. (Unlike Florida Blue, it is not an insurance company.) The organization and its partners provide treatment options for people who struggle with addiction, experience mental health disorders, and require behavioral health advice.

Olympus Recovery—an outpatient addiction treatment center in Delray Beach, FL—and New Directions are in-network drug recovery partners for Florida Blue. Learn how all three organizations can help people with dependency issues in Florida get the help they need.

What is ATLAS?

ATLAS is a database that connects you with high-quality addiction treatment options in Florida. The database is the result of a collaboration between Florida Blue, New Directions, and national nonprofit Shatterproof. Now it’s easier to find healthcare providers that offer treatment services like detox, counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and whole-person care. You can discover health clinicians and professionals in your area with a few clicks of a button.

What Happens During Detox Treatment?

Detoxification (or detox), typically the first stage of drug and alcohol treatment, involves removing toxic substances from your body. This process usually takes place in an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation center and normally lasts several days to 1 week, but you might require treatment spanning several weeks or months.

Withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol can be difficult for some patients. That’s why choosing a rehabilitation center that offers ongoing support is essential. Florida Blue Insurance’s in-network drug recovery partners provide various detox services that can safely manage withdrawal symptoms and prepare you for the next stage of your recovery journey. Depending on your healthcare insurance plan, Florida Blue might cover the full or partial cost of detox treatment, saving you money.

Types of Therapy for Substance Use Disorders

Florida Blue insurance covers therapy for mental health and substance use

Therapy can help you evaluate and treat your substance use disorder, deal with high-conflict situations, and manage your personal and professional relationships. Some of the most popular therapy services for drug and alcohol addiction include:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Online counseling

A healthcare professional can help you select the most appropriate therapy for your particular situation.

Florida Blue Insurance has a wide range of in-network drug recovery partners that offer therapy services. Olympus Recovery is one of these partners. The outpatient rehab center specializes in various forms of drug recovery therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

CBT can treat common conditions associated with substance use disorders such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This type of therapy can also teach coping mechanisms when dealing with a traumatic event such as the loss of a loved one or chronic pain and illness. Depending on your plan, Florida Blue Insurance might cover the full cost of CBT and other therapies offered by its in-network partners.

Can Life Coaching Help?

Some people with drug and alcohol dependency issues will benefit from a life coach who can provide specialist advice about careers, relationships, and responsibilities. New Directions specializes in life coaching and can help you manage stress and other issues during the recovery process. The organization’s coaches might provide you with the skills required to deal with challenges in your day-to-day life.

Like Olympus Recovery, New Directions is one of Florida Blue’s in-network drug recovery partners. That means Florida Blue might cover all or some of the costs of working with a New Directions life coach, depending on your plan.

Inpatient & Outpatient Programs

Both inpatient and outpatient programs incorporate services like detox, therapy, and medication-assisted treatment. However, inpatient programs require you to say in a facility overnight, while outpatient programs let you receive care at a center while residing at home.

Florida Blue Insurance’s in-network drug recovery partners offer inpatient and outpatient treatment options, helping you discover affordable treatment in your local area. You can also find partners that offer intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) that combine drug and alcohol recovery with treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD. Alternatively, consider a partial hospitalization program (PHP) that allows someone with a substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorder to travel to a center throughout the week and receive the treatment they deserve.

You can contact Florida Blue Insurance to check whether your plan covers the full or partial cost of inpatient and outpatient treatment services.

Medication-Assisted Treatment Will Help Alleviate Withdrawal Symptoms

Medication-assisted treatment combines medication with therapy to provide a holistic approach to drug and alcohol addiction. You can use this treatment at any stage of the drug recovery process to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms from detoxification.

Florida Blue Insurance has various in-network partners that provide medication-assisted treatment. The insurance company can sometimes cover the entire cost of treatment.

Employee-Assisted Programs

Some people who suffer from substance use disorders struggle to manage their working lives. New Directions recognizes personal and workplace challenges and the impact these challenges can have on wellness and job performance. Its employee-assisted program (EAP) provides you with access to confidential resources for maintaining happiness and health in the workplace. These resources can help you overcome day-to-day stresses and support you on your road to recovery.
