While mental health treatment diagnoses and treats mental illness and disorders, behavioral health treatment helps the patient understand and change their addictive behavior, even if they have no diagnosed mental illnesses. Behavioral health services can range from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to habit analysis, all working toward the goal of helping the patient understand and dismantle the unhealthy habits that brought them to this point. By combining drug rehab, mental health care, and behavioral health treatment, patients are set up for success from every possible angle — mental, physical and emotional.
Behavioral health is inextricably linked to mental health when it comes to recovering from substance addiction, but they are typically classified separately under your health insurance plan. If you’re considering Twin Town Treatment Centers’ drug rehab, contact Aetna to ask about your behavioral health coverage. Aetna offers behavioral health treatment coverage, but the extent of the coverage and the associated costs vary from plan to plan.
