Family members can be a tremendous source of strength for persons suffering from mental illness and/or substance abuse. When a person is struggling with mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, everyone in the family is affected. Fortunately, involving family in addiction and mental health recovery can have a major positive impact on their loved one. There are several ways you can help, which include attending one of our family support groups, seeking social support and understanding relapse prevention.

To learn more about how families can play a supportive role visit the National Alliance for Mental Illness or the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

In general, many outpatient counseling services can be covered by insurance.  BCC accepts many plans including Medicaid, Medicare, and Community Care Behavioral Health.  If you have any questions regarding insurance coverage, we will assist you.  BCC can also help those with no insurance to access treatment either by assisting you in securing benefits or helping you access County funding which may be available for those without ability to pay.  Several of BCC’s programs are fully funded and may be provided at no cost to you.  There is never a reason not to access care.  BCC staff are expert at helping you navigate access to services.
