Studies have shown that treating addiction can be considerably less costly than letting things snowball and get worse. To satisfy their cravings, addicts often turn to theft, drug-dealing or other crimes, only to wind up behind bars. Overdoses, meanwhile, send many addicts to local emergency rooms.
For families and society in general, substance abuse treatment is a life-saving choice that also saves money. In California, where the voter-approved Proposition 36 requires many nonviolent drug offenders be offered treatment instead of jail, a UCLA study found that every $1 spent on treatment resulted in a $2 savings in government spending, mainly from reduced prison costs.
In Alabama, a study by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse found that addiction costs ate up 13% of the state’s budget. Only a tiny fraction of that money went to prevention or treatment efforts, and it was expenses like prisons, welfare and courts that strained Alabama’s budget.
Ultimately, saving a life is worth it. Call American Addiction Centers today.
