Addiction treatment for substance abuse has been a hot issue in the media recently. People are saying that it’s a “waste of money” because they can’t afford treatment. However, addiction treatment is not a waste of money if the person that you’re treating gets better and stays sober. Substance abuse, alcohol in particular, has an extremely high recidivism rate. If someone is able to keep their sobriety for a year after they’ve been through rehab, they have a 97% chance of doing so again. So, not only is addiction treatment cost effective, it can be an effective deterrent for recidivism and future drug use. Ask a question, be a client advocate.
