SACRAMENTO, CA, April 12, 2021 — Essential Behavioral Health, a leading outpatient behavioral health facility with a focus on mental health, addiction treatment, and co-occurring disorders, is pleased to announce that its primary mental health partial program is now in-network with three leading insurance carriers: Aetna, Anthem and Magellan Health. 

These in-network options will make treatment more affordable to those who need it most, said Arel Meister-Aldama, CEO of Sprout Health Group, of which Essential Behavioral Health is a subsidiary. 

“While we work with almost all commercial insurance, having an in-network option will make treatment affordable for many more people during this difficult time,” he said.  

The licensed, certified clinicians at Essential Behavioral Health in Sacramento, California, will work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, grief and loss, and many more mental health challenges with or without a co-occurring substance use issue.  

Treatment at Essential Behavioral Health runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. six days a week, so clients remain engaged and focused on their recovery. Staff can also arrange structured and monitored housing with community partners for clients who need that support.
