Challenges in the Addiction and Recovery Industry
Often, the intricacies of what's happening within a given industry is not apparent until, as a consumer or customer you become introduced to that industry. The addiction and recovery industry is no different. Additionally, our health care options and systems are in the midst of changing in order to support the Affordable Care Act. So today, we're talking about some of the challenges that exist in the addiction and recovery field.

Contrary to what you may see on programs like Intervention, the normal treatment time has been drastically reduced from what was once considered to be a 30 day average stay for addicted people. Listen in today as we talk with addiction specialist and clinical therapist Jeffrey Steenbergh about what's going on, what we can do about it, and how your addicted loved ones may be impacted!
