Low Government Payments Strike a Blow to Treatment

In a dramatic sad display of the government solely paying lip service to combat the addiction tsunami drowning our nation, the largest provider of drug and alcohol treatment in Colorado closed in January of this year due to low government reimbursement.  The Arapahoe House was treating up to 5,000 people a year when it shuttered its doors.  The facility was struggling with losses for seven years, culminating in a whopping $3.5 million of red ink in its final year of operations.  Over 90% of its patients were low income, paid for by state and federal grants.  Unfortunately, those payments couldn’t keep up with the costs of treatment.  Even the Trump Administration’s declaration of a “national opioid crisis” did little to free up additional funding.  What will it take?  If only government could step up to the plate and play the key role we all need to get a handle on this crisis.  As part of the solution, they could focus on getting more people into treatment instead of being the underlying reason behind why so many people will now be kicked to the curb and forced to fend for themselves during this urgent time of need.
