Where have we been? Where do we go from here?

Addiction treatment is in the midst of a period of significant transformation. While we often attribute the changes to the availability of insurance reimbursement through Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, the reality is that these two laws are only part of a larger story of major change over the past 150 years. This webinar uses the framework of key historical developments both in the treatment of addiction and federal and state regulation (in California) to analyze lessons that can help understand how we got where we are today with respect to many of the unusual facets of the addiction treatment landscape. More importantly, the same lessons are instructive about ongoing changes and the future of the industry from a clinical, licensing, and reimbursement perspective.
