Obamacare and the Future of Rehab

Hosted by

When it comes to alcohol and drug addiction, the private rehab industry is undergoing big changes. Self-help and spirituality are losing favor to science and medicine. Before Obamacare, one third of Americans had no coverage for treatment of substance abuse. KCRW Producer Evan George reports on what’s happening now.

Evan’s report is Part Two of a project for the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship, a program of USC’s Annenberg School for Journalism and Communication. You can read about it and listen to all our coverage at the WWLA? blog.
