United Behavioral Health

Need help with a mental health or substance abuse problem?

We offer our members convenient and confidential services through United Behavioral Health (UBH). UBH can help members with troubles affecting their family, job, and happiness. UBH can also assist members with a substance abuse problem.

How to get Help
To get help, members can simply call 1-800-867-6758 (TTY/TDD hearing impaired 1-800-486-7914) to talk to an experienced mental health care professional. He or she will determine the member's needs and will link him or her with a mental health or substance abuse health care professional in that area that is most qualified to meet the member's needs. This is called “authorization.” It helps members get the help they need quickly and conveniently.

Visit the United Behavioral Health liveandworkwell.com Web site, a Web site devoted to helping members make the most of their lives. It includes information, tools, and resources for dealing with stress, depression, and other mental health concerns; alcohol and drug problems; living with chronic conditions; and more.

Remember: Before a member receives inpatient or outpatient services, he or she needs to call UBH for authorization.

Dedicated Physicians and Other Health Care Professionals
UBH providers have a lot of experience treating mental health and substance abuse disorders. They include psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers and substance abuse counselors. All of them have extensive training and experience.

Services include individual and group therapy, psychiatric evaluation and medication management.

Emergency Crisis Service
A team of counselors helps members obtain emergency care 24 hours a day. Simply call 1-800-867-6758 (TTY/TDD hearing impaired 1-800-486-7914). If a member has a mental health or substance abuse emergency, call UBH right away. UBH will help guide him or her to the best care for the situation. With an emergency admission, call UBH for authorization within 24 hours of admission.
