Rehabs Writing Their Own Ticket?

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

With many of the new health care laws going into place, as well as insurance parity for substance abuse and mental health services, the door has been further opened for even those drug rehabs that are unsuccessful to continue to get more money.

If our government was responsible, it would have tied in quality control measures with its funding mandates so that facilities that do not provide much help don’t receive more money and so that drug rehab centers that achieve results can have access to more financial backing.

Unfortunately, too many drug recovery centers still promote that addiction is an incurable disease, which is not only damaging to individuals trying to permanently recover, but also happens to be a lie.
