. there has been a rise in addiction in the US with more people using and abusing drugs. Addiction is expensive. The costs of addiction are a drain on finances, family, friends, and life. According to the Surgeon General (2011), addiction costs over $600B annually in increased healthcare, crime, and lost productivity.

Government investment in treatment programs has been substantial over the past few decades. This increased investment affects everyone in society. The federal government funds state treatment programs; however, in challenging economic times (recession), the government often cuts funding for these treatment programs. When funding is cut, treatment facilities close.
