I feel like Cornerstone gave him all the right tools. He knew how to do it. It was something we could have never done. I just could totally see kind of a personality change in him of wanting, and knowing, that he could achieve and do higher things and greater things. That has to be the people (at Cornerstone).”

Does Health Choice cover co-occurring or dual diagnosis treatment?

Yes, Health Choice Arizona offers coverage for dual diagnosis treatment, encompassing both substance abuse and mental health disorders.

Such treatment typically involves a combination of therapy, medication management, and additional supportive measures aimed at addressing both the substance dependency and the mental health condition.

Insurance providers recognize the need for holistic treatment and cover various dual diagnosis treatment approaches, ensuring members access the comprehensive care required for sustained recovery.
