The Need For Financial Assistance
According to the SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services approximately 5% of the people in the United States (i.e. 14,000,000 people) have a substance abuse problem that requires professional treatment at a treatment facility. They confirm that approximately 10% of those requiring treatment can afford treatment and receive it. Private pay clients and insurance companies expend over $12,000,000,000 annually for substance abuse treatment. The need for assistance is massive. SAMHSA studies confirm that the cost of drug abuse in the Unites States estimated at $181 billion every year, $107 billion of which is associated with drug-related crime. (NMHSA)
