Blue Distinction Rehab Centers Near Me
If you or a loved one suffer from a substance use disorder (SUD), a medical condition defined by an uncontrollable use of drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences, and you’re ready to seek help, you want to find a facility that offers high-quality treatment and care.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Association recognizes healthcare facilities that meet strict standards and deliver excellent, effective, affordable patient care as Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery.
What is Blue Distinction?
Blue Distinction Centers are designated treatment facilities that show a commitment to improving patient safety and better health outcomes. Designations are awarded based on quality criteria—developed with input from the medical community and leading accreditation organizations—that support delivery of timely, coordinated, multidisciplinary, evidence-based care.
The BDC Substance Use Treatment and Recovery program requires residential, inpatient, intensive outpatient, or partial hospitalization facilities to provide patients with quality medical and psychological care during all phases of treatment—from withdrawal and detox management through long-term maintenance and support.1 Additionally, designated facilities must offer medication-assisted treatment for those with opioid use disorder (OUD).1
