Effective immediately, the new name for the Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (DASA) is the Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR). The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) changed the name to help remove stigmatizing language and to support the commitment of SUPR and the provider community at large on prevention of, and recovery from, substance use disorders.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) is currently working to update documents and information on our Provider website to reflect this new name change. If you have any questions, contact Community Provider Network at 855-653-8126 or govproviders@bcbsil.com.
