|Report: VT Center Closes 30-Days on Staff Shortage|
|Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire|
01/07/2017 - ATIN - Quite a few years ago Treatment Magazine wrote an extensive report predicting a looming staffing crisis in the addiction treatment industry. One of the main reasons for the expectation was an average counselor age of over 50-years-old combined with an inadequate replacement rate by those of youger age groups. Over the past few years the problem has become much worse by a big boom in new treatrment capacity, moving the staff shortage up the food chain into the executivve ranks.
Below is a story out of Vermont we picked up off Google News:
