In addition to their insurance, which can cover your treatment costs, they also offer Beacon Care Services. These are services provided directly by Beacon Health Options. Beacon Care Services can help you in conjunction with a recovery center. These services include in-person and/or telehealth consultations, discussions, and follow-ups.

If you are not sure what type of insurance you have through your employer, you should reach out to your Human Resources department and ask.
