Facts About Addiction and Recovery

Every $1 invested in addiction treatment saves $7 in reduced crime and criminal justice costs, and when savings related to health care are factored in, that savings jumps to $12.

Studies show that addiction treatment significantly reduces emergency room, inpatient, and total health care costs.

Studies show that employers save when employees receive drug and alcohol treatment because of reduced absenteeism and tardiness, increased productivity and fewer on-the-job conflicts.
