When the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, addiction treatment centers had to fundamentally
change how they cared for patients overnight. The number of people needing addiction treatment started increasing rapidly shortly after the pandemic was declared and has remained 10-20% higher than pre-pandemic levels since.
Today, as the country starts to reopen, addiction treatment leaders are confronted with the
monumental task of figuring out how to best structure their business for the “new normal”.
Avea's founder and Chairman, Ben Dittman, along with other industry leaders Joanna Conti, Dan Gemp, Harry Nelson and Dexter Braff created the 2021 State of Addiction Treatment report with the
hope that it helps addiction treatment leaders make informed decisions about how to position their
center to thrive in 2021 and beyond.
Here's What's In the State of Addiction Treatment Report:
- COVID's impact on patients attending SUD treatment
- The effects COVID had on the business of addiction treatment and what to expect going forward
- Ways that marketing strategies have changed and their effectiveness
- New regulations that have been proposed and/or enacted
- How mergers and acquisitions continue to reshape the field
"The second quarter of 2020 was the most stressful period I can remember in the 30 years I've been in this industry."
