I believe the Affordable Health Care Act will improve addiction rehabilitation services even though the current system is still ineffective and broken. I believe we will see this improvement the longer the Affordable Health Care Act is in place. One thing that will be improved over time with this act are medical records and how they are stored. We will now be able to compile all of these records into one database in the future. This means that patients will no longer be able to hide their past, nor will the be able to skip from one doctor to the next without the medical professionals being aware of it. Eventually I think this will lead to a better understanding of addiction and how it can be better rehabilitated.
With more people having access to these services, it will improve these services and the people using such services. If a rehab center has more people to treat and better facility's. they will improve overall. This will be very useful because drug addiction is a terrible thing that affects everyone.
The Affordable Care Act is going to improve all medical and rehabilitation facilities, because more money and resources will now be allocated to these places. More people will be able to afford rehab, and the rehab facilities are going to be upgraded. This is a win win situation, and will probably continue to improve.
Although I think the Affordable Care Act will bring about some changes in addiction treatment programs, I think it'll still be fundamentally broken. And that's because the people who run such programs are often unprofessional and unstable former drug users on power trips. Until the addiction treatment profession gets more professional, this will not change.
No, the affordable care act will not help with addiction treatment, because their is only one person who can help with being addicted, and that is the addict themselves. If you do not want to change deep down, then no amount of medical help is going to help you shake it.
