Big changes for mental health, substance abuse

Maybe you like Obamacare. Or, maybe you view the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as yet another nail in the coffin of individual liberty. In either case, the law promises to make sweeping changes in the Arizona's healthcare system, and nowhere more so than in the treatment of mental illness and substance abuse.

If the citizens of Arizona want to see their state’s substance abuse problem grow, then enroll more addicts to receive more services.

Addicts change their ways only when they begin to hurt, or when they “hit bottom.” Arizona is taking steps to ensure that fewer addicts ever have to face that kind of discomfort.
