You are not alone on your journey toward recovery.
According to the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, over 2 million people in this country are admitted to rehab each year for a prescription drug abuse problem, although this figure does not include those who are addicted to alcohol or illicit drugs. This demonstrates just how significant the problem is in this country. It also explains the importance of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, which determined that substance abuse problems should be treated in the same way as mental health problems, and therefore ought to be covered under insurance policies. How insurance companies cover substance abuse treatment will vary tremendously.
