Recovery Unplugged Is Now in Network with Military Health Insurance Provider TRICARE

Recovery Unplugged Behavioral Health is pleased and excited to announce that it is now in network with TRICARE. The partnership, which will be active across all Recovery Unplugged facilities and levels of care, promises to provide increased and better-quality treatment access to active and retired military service members and their families impacted by substance use disorder and other mental health challenges.

What Is TRICARE?

TRICARE is the healthcare program for uniformed service members, retirees, and their families around the world. Most TRICARE health plans meet the requirements for minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act. TRICARE is managed by the Defense Health Agency under the leadership of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs).

What Kind of Mental Health Services Does TRICARE Cover?

In addition to substance use disorder, TRICARE provides different tiers of coverage for a wide array of mental health issues, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. Covered treatments often include inpatient/residential and intensive outpatient treatment, as well as remote care for those who need a more flexible mode of treatment.

The Importance of Help for Military and Their Families

Along with the higher rates of substance use disorder, PTSD, and depression among active and retired military, families of those in the United States Armed Forces face a variety of challenges on their own.

  • Over 25 percent of active-military spouses have an anxiety diagnosis.
  • Over five percent of these families have contemplated suicide in the past year.
  • Over 20 percent of active-military households have children struggling with depression.
  • Over eight percent of these households have a child struggling with depressive disorders.

Common Mental Health Triggers for Active-Duty Military

The men and women of the United States Armed Forces face a variety of immediate and long-term factors that can impact their mental health. These include but are not limited to combat-related anxiety, depression from being away from their loved ones, and difficulty coping with the loss of their fellow servicemembers. They also have to cope with frequently adjusting to new areas, separating from other servicemembers with whom they form close bonds and more. These mental health challenges can, and often do, cause those struggling to cope with alcohol or drug abuse. They can also impact soldiers’ families when they return home and their fellow servicemembers while they’re still serving.

Mental Health Struggles for Military Families

Families of active-duty service members struggle just as much with mental health challenges, and sometimes even more. Some of the most common examples of this can include:

  • An anxious or overly tired single parent who feels isolated and alone
  • A child who is worried about their mother or father’s safety while they serve
  • A spouse or child with a returning loved one who is battling their own mental health issues (PTSD, depression, substance use, etc.)
  • Loved ones who have lost their parent or spouse in combat

As loved ones of military personnel struggle right alongside them, it’s important that they have quality treatment resources to help them cope. Recovery Unplugged has gone in-network with TRICARE to help these individuals find the peace of mind and balanced mental health they need and deserve.

If you or someone you care about are active-duty military, a veteran of our Armed Forces, or are a loved one those who have served, Recovery Unplugged is ready to help you overcome your mental health challenges.
