Highmark Health

Highmark Inc. is the fourth largest company affiliated with Blue Cross Blue Shield, and is among the 10 largest health insurance companies throughout the entire United States. Highmark offers comprehensive health insurance plans to residents of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Delaware, and currently covers more that 5.3 million Americans. The healthcare company is based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and first came to be in the early 1990s when two Blue Cross Blue Shield licensees in Pennsylvania were consolidated – Pennsylvania Blue Shield (now Highmark Blue Shield) which was based out of Harrisburg, and Blue Cross of Western Pennsylvania (now Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield) which was based out of downtown Pittsburgh. In 2007, Highmark announced that it would be consolidating with Independence BCBS of Philadelphia, making it one of the four largest BCBS-affiliated companies. The health insurance provider now covers millions of individuals and families throughout the east coast. Highmark is known for providing comprehensive insurance benefits, including benefits geared exclusively towards behavioral health.

Medical Detoxification

Medical detox is a necessary first phase of every effective, long-term treatment program. At CuraWest we believe that medical detox should involve more than physical stabilization; we believe it should provide a clinically comprehensive experience that sets a solid foundation for long-term sobriety while preparing each individual client for the next appropriate level of clinical care. Our homestyle detox facility was carefully designed with client comfort in mind. We offer a wide range of services and amenities, all geared towards providing the most effective and quality level of clinical and holistic care available. Once a client has been physically stabilized in the detox portion of our program, they have the option of transitioning into the residential portion of our program for between 3 and 21 days.

The majority of treatment services we provide are covered by major health insurance providers. Unfortunately, many individuals fail to seek professional detoxification services or residential inpatient treatment because they are not aware of the extensive resources that are readily available to them. At CuraWest we work closely with potential clients to ensure that the admissions process is as simple as possible. If you or someone you love is in desperate need of medical detox but is unsure about how the coverage will work, simply give our Treatment Advisors a call.

Symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening when not constantly overseen by a team of medical professionals. At CuraWest we utilize a careful combination of proven detox techniques and holistic methodologies. Depending on the substance that was being abused and depending on the results of the in-depth assessment we conduct when a client is admitted, we employ Medication Assisted Treatment or tapering along with intensive behavioral therapy. If a client has been suffering from a dual diagnosis disorder we offer psychiatric care, and trauma-informed treatment for those who have been suffering at the hands of unresolved trauma.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Once an individual has been deemed physically fit to move on to the next appropriate level of clinical care, they are given the opportunity to transition directly into our inpatient treatment facility. Inpatient treatment offers a higher level of intensive clinical and therapeutic care. Depending on the substances involved in the active addiction and the severity and length of use, the duration of inpatient treatment varies. However, in most cases, it will last for between one and three months. The duration of our residential program varies depending on the needs of each client, and can last for anywhere between 3 and 21 days. One of the main goals of inpatient treatment is intensive therapeutic intervention along with the development of essential life, coping and relapse prevention skills. Clients will learn about the disease model of addiction, work through past traumatic experiences and delve deep into personal issues and destructive behavioral patterns in individual and group therapy sessions.

Health insurance policies very often cover the full duration of treatment, or only require the policy holder cover a co-pay. At CuraWest, we understand that attempting to figure out the financial components of inpatient treatment can seem daunting – however, it never needs to be. If you have recently completed medical detox and are searching for the next appropriate level of clinical care or if you are attempting to find an inpatient treatment center for your loved one while he or she is undergoing withdrawal in a detox facility, we are available to help. Simply give us a call and our Treatment Advisors will walk you through all potential coverage options.
