AvanceEngage Behavioral Wellness Services
Employer Behavioral Wellness Program
AvanceEngage behavioral therapists provide individualized services to help your employees manage diagnosable conditions, as well as cope with individual and interpersonal stresses, both at work and at home. This treatment leads to improved individual health outcomes and employee satisfaction. Employees who are healthier will have higher job satisfaction, reduced absenteeism, fewer personnel conflicts and HR complaints, and reduced turnover.
Research in the United States has demonstrated that individuals with behavioral health disorders incur total medical expenses that are approximately $7,500+ per year higher than patients without behavioral conditions. Professional organizations are increasingly recognizing that it is necessary to treat the behavioral conditions first, in order to remove barriers that lead patients not to follow through with their physician’s recommendations on managing obesity, smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.
Studies also show that employees with behavioral diagnoses don’t cost more simply because they are receiving behavioral treatment. Employers could actually save 9%-17% annually by integrating physical and behavioral healthcare into their companies.
