Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire

05/29/2018 - ATIN - A House committee investigating the treatment industry in the wake of expose type reporting, mostly by the Palm Beach Post and the OC Register, has sent letters requesting information from eight treatment industry participants about possible patient brokering, which is illegal in the US but not in most of the rest of the world, including Europe.

The letters went to:  American Addiction Centers, AAC, one of the nation's largest treatment chains; Addiction No More in Texas; Addiction Recovery Now in Florida; Elite Rehab Placement in Michigan; Redwood Recovery Solutions in Florida; Solutions Recovery Center in Florida; Treatment Management Company in Georgia; and Intervention Allies in North Hollywood.

AAC CEO Mike Cartwright told the OC Register he welcomed the scrutiny, saying it's time lawmakers got a better understanding of the hows and whys of patient flows into the industry.

The recipients are under no legal obligation to provide any information requested in the letters, as they would be under congressional supeana.
