Magellan Health was recently in the news for exceeding value-based care benchmarks. The company announced that its in-network providers continue positively impacting behavioral health outcomes. At Comprehensive Wellness Centers of South Florida, we are proud to be Magellan mental health providers. We offer mental health and substance abuse services to Magellan behavioral health policyholders.

What Services Do Magellan Mental Health Providers Offer?

Magellan Health specializes in behavioral health insurance plans. Behavioral health refers to mental health conditions, including substance use disorders (SUDs). Magellan works with providers that offer treatments for these issues.

Inpatient Mental Health Treatments

People with severe mental health conditions can receive care at an in-network Magellan inpatient provider. These providers offer therapy and medication management for:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Stress disorders

Inpatient programs, or residential treatment programs, allow patients to live at the facility where they receive treatment. Patients receive 24-hour support from medical and clinical staff.

Inpatient Addiction Treatments

In-network providers with Magellan offer inpatient addiction programs, including withdrawal management services, therapy, medication management, and aftercare treatment. You can get help for alcohol use disorder, prescription pill dependency, illicit drug use, and more.

Outpatient Mental Health Treatments

Some mental health conditions warrant outpatient mental health care. Patients can live at home and attend work and familial obligations and commute to therapy sessions.

Outpatient Addiction Treatments

Outpatient programs are best for people with mild to moderate substance use disorders. These programs also work well for patients discharged from inpatient programs. Magellan providers offer services for all kinds of addictions, as well as inpatient treatment. Your insurance covers individual and group therapy as well as IOPs and PHPs.

The Benefits of Mental Health Care

Nearly 60 million people in the U.S. suffer from mental health conditions, including substance use disorders. The good news is that behavioral health providers can help. Facilities like the Comprehensive Wellness Centers offer therapy and other treatments, which provide various benefits.

Defeat Negative Coping Skills

It is common for mental health conditions and substance use disorders to co-occur. In other words, people with mental health issues have a high likelihood of developing addictions and vice versa. Mental health disorders often underlie addictions because people use substances to cope with their symptoms. In therapy, you can learn better coping strategies to replace substance abuse. Positive coping strategies can also help eliminate other unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as binge eating, risk-taking, self-harm, and violence.

Improve Self-Esteem and Self-Worth

Mental health treatment can help people learn to love themselves. Early trauma and interpersonal conflict may affect your sense of self-worth. Often, these issues result in negative self-talk.

Therapy can help people learn to overcome these negative thought patterns. Research has found that people with good self-images tend to do better in school and work. They are more resilient to future mental and physical health struggles.

Learn to Manage Emotions Effectively

Emotional IQ is crucial for a healthy, happy life. Yet, too many of us understand our own and others’ emotions poorly. A therapist can teach you how your emotions influence your self-esteem and more. You will also learn how others’ feelings impact their responses. Over time, you can change your conception of how emotions do and should affect your life.

Reduce the Impact of Stress

In a recent report from the American Psychological Association, nearly 1 in 3 adults reported feeling so stressed they can’t function. And they reported feeling this way most days.
Stress has become an epidemic in the U.S., and therapy is one way to reduce the number of people suffering from the impacts of stress. Therapy will not just impact your stress levels but also reduce stress’s impact on your physical health. High-stress levels are correlated with chronic diseases, headaches, GI issues, sleep disturbances, and much more.

Develop a More Positive Outlook on Life

The main goal of behavioral health treatment is to help you live a healthier, more fulfilled life. Through the tools and strategies you gain in therapy, you can:

  • Improve your interpersonal relationships
  • Enhance your view of yourself
  • Boost your ability to problem solve in the real world

People who get help for their mental health issues tend to see improved careers and social relationships. Therapy won’t help you magically become happy, but treatment can help you learn how to set up your life for success.
