More Barriers Removed for Women Seeking Treatment for Addiction

Online PR News – 27-August-2020 – COSTA MESA, Calif. – Lack of medical insurance can be the main reason people do not seek help for their drug or alcohol addiction, and with the COVID-19 pandemic causing spiking relapse rates, it’s perfect timing for three new major insurers to be added to New Directions For Women (NDFW).
Blue Shield of California, Covered California and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans outside of California are now on NDFW’s already expansive list of in-network providers, following an intensive two-year evaluation to confirm the acclaimed treatment center was properly accredited and did not have any fraudulent claims or patient complaints.
“We passed the evaluation with flying colors and now accept insurance from most major insurance providers – something that few facilities can offer,” explained Sue Bright, NDFW’s Executive Director. “Given the incredible stressors people are experiencing during the pandemic, this could not have happened at a better time.”
The CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities)-accredited treatment center serves women of all ages, including ones with a history of trauma and multiple treatment episodes, and is one of the few in the nation that treats pregnant women and women with children on campus. NDFW has over 40 years of successfully treating women and their families, offering onsite social model detox, residential rehab, partial day program, intensive outpatient program, intensive sober living, and general outpatient services, such as individual and group sessions. It also has the only CARF-accredited sober living home in Orange County.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics recently reported drug deaths may reach record levels, making it apparent the United States continues to face a drug and alcohol crisis. At New Directions for Women, it is imperative to continue holding the highest industry and community standards in addiction treatment and post-treatment care to make an impact in combatting this crisis and breaking the generational cycle of addiction.
