Alison Knaupf, the Editor of ADAW as well as a highly regarding contributor to other industry publications, recently published a story about how insurance companies may be rejecting residential/inpatient detoxification services in favor of the outpatient model.
Many, many of you have told me that you wholly reject the outpatient model for various reasons (having very little to do with money and having mostly to do with not wanting to become a form of legalized drug dealer).
Ms. Knaupf is very interested in speaking with people as a follow-up to her article (attached) to get the other side.
Please let me know if you are interested and I will put you in touch with her.
