Drug Rehabilitation or Revolving Door?

Posted Dec 23 2008 2:05pm
The New York Times paints a dim view of addiction treatment and foreshadows a financial black hole once parity takes effect. The word recovery does not appear once, no mention of findings regarding the positive outcomes and cost-effectiveness of treatment, no mention of twelve step facilitation as an evidence based practice, no mention of duration of treatment as an important factor in outcomes, and, as Bill White has said, these arguments about MET vs. TSF vs. MET are all arguments within the acute care paradigm. Systems change needs to focus on long term recovery management strategies for chronic addicts.
