Anthem Insurance and Addiction Treatment
Substance abuse and addiction in America is one of the biggest public health epidemics in modern history. Addiction can affect individuals, families and even full communities. A recent report from the Surgeon General of the US estimates that one in every 7 people will deal with a substance abuse issue in their lifetime.
The important thing to remember about addiction is that it’s a chronic disease. It requires consistent, comprehensive and individualized treatment in order to avoid relapse.

Unsurprisingly, many people have cost as a top of mind concern when it comes to seeking treatment. Thankfully, most health insurance companies offer coverage for services related to addiction treatment services. Anthem serves one of every eight Americans through its affiliated health plans.
