Certain insurance plans are legally required to cover benefits for addiction treatment under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”). Our new report shows that ACA Plans sold in many states in 2017 did not comply with these requirements. The report, Uncovering Coverage Gaps II: A Review and Comparison of Addiction Benefits in ACA Plans, demonstrates the need for policymakers to better implement and enforce laws that are meant to prohibit discriminatory insurance practices and ensure patients and families are able to obtain lifesaving care that is affordable.
We are thrilled to announce Center on Addiction | Partnership for Drug-Free Kids has been selected as an official charity partner of the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon!
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling or other caregiver — these resources can provide valuable help and support to you or anyone else playing a supportive role in the life of a young person struggling with substance use and addiction .
By combining our two organizations, we now have the comprehensive tools we need to truly fulfill our mission: transforming how our nation addresses addiction.
For many parents, regularly talking to their children about addictive substances can be challenging. With this in mind, we asked our readers, “How often do you talk to your children about drugs and alcohol?”
While nearly one-third of respondents said they talk to their kids about this important topic every week, the most common response was never, which received 40 percent of the votes.
