“Drug, alcohol and other addiction rehab in the United States is big business - $35 billion this year. There are now 14,000+ treatment facilities and growing. A total of 2.5 million persons received treatment, but many more need it and facilities are filled to capacity. However, insurance coverage for rehab is limited. As a result, most of the tab is paid by government/state agencies.”, according to Research Director, John LaRosa.
* Market Value… Marketdata analysts estimate that the drug, alcohol and other addictions treatment industry will be worth $35 billion this year. Moderate 5.2% annual growth in revenues is forecast through 2018. The states provide most of the funding, and insurance coverage is still scarce.
* The industry is comprised of 14,000+ treatment facilities and growing. The typical treatment center has 40 patients and has annual revenues of $548,000.
* Experts worry that with implementation of the Affordable Care Act, 3-5 million new patients will enter the system in need of substance abuse treatment, and will overwhelm the current system’s capacity.
* High-end niches have emerged for the well-heeled that can pay out-of-pocket (think Hollywood celebrities)
* Destination markets exist in Florida and California, where the mild climate is used as a marketing tool.
* CRC Health Group, a Bain Capital subsidiary, is the nation’s leading treatment center chain, operating 145 facilities and with 2013 revenues of $456 million. It’s one example of an industry “roll-up” – growth via acquisitions.
* A total of 2.5 million persons were treated in 2012, but there were 5 million persons in need of treatment.
* The old 28-day $30,000 inpatient stay for treatment has become a thing of the past. Fully 81% of patients are treated on an outpatient basis today.
* Smaller treatment facilities that rely on cash payments (such as those located in Florida) may get squeezed by the larger chain competitors.
* An estimated 22.2 million Americans aged 12+ were classified with substance dependence or abuse in 2012, according to government agencies.
"Rehab is much more than reality TV shows that focus on spoiled celebrities, who stay at luxury facilities in California for a few weeks or a month for $50,000. This is the high end tip of the iceberg. There are many more regular Americans struggling with ongoing drug, alcohol and other addictions that rely on public agencies for help.”, according to Research Director, John LaRosa.
