Progressive Institute and Major Carriers Launch Integrated Recovery Coaching Programs to Improve Addiction Treatment Outcomes

Thursday, September 3, 2020

SHELTON, CT – To kick off National Recovery Month 2020, Progressive Institute has launched a landmark study to measure how integrated recovery coaching improves outcomes for people diagnosed with alcohol and other Substance Use Disorders (SUD). The Company is also proud to announce in-network partnerships with five of the largest commercial insurance carriers to cover Progressive Integrated Recovery Coaching for over 400,000 fully insured Connecticut residents.

Research shows that nearly 20 million Americans each year suffer from a substance use disorder that requires specialized treatment. Despite the prevalence of addiction, it is estimated that only 10% of this group of people ever receive treatment. However, experts agree that access to affordable quality treatment is essential to long-term recovery.

Progressive Institute’s unique recovery coaching programs provide fully integrated and individualized care for men, women and young adults, effectively supporting them throughout all stages of their recovery. The programs support and measure success rates, sustainability, wellness and impact on utilization and cost of services. Progressive coaching seeks to build confidence, a sense of purpose and happiness that leads to freedom.

Curt Kuliga, CEO & Founder of The Progressive Group said, “Our early studies are showing that recovery coaching programs that are designed to address specific individual needs and is integrated into the patient’s overall treatment plan with therapists, medical doctors and family members improves the success rate of long-term recovery while reducing the total cost of care.” He further added, “We are excited and grateful to be collaborating with our commercial insurance carrier partners to deliver this level of care to their members.”
