Under these new laws, addiction is no longer considered a pre-existing condition for insurance purposes.
This is a big deal. Because there are millions of Americans struggling with drug and alcohol addiction or dependence.
Skid row style addicts aren’t the only people who qualify for addiction recovery treatment. You may also qualify if you’re a “regular person” simply struggling with alcohol or drug dependence.
That was Jennifer Saffron’s story. She felt like a regular girl, who found herself living this dangerous double life.
“When I first started drinking in College it was all just good fun. But slowly, so slowly I barely noticed, I found myself getting too drunk too often.
Sometimes I get so drunk, I can’t remember what happens to me at the end of the night. I’ve fallen down and gotten hurt. I have bruises the next morning I can’t explain.
There are hours of my life I have ZERO recollection of. It’s really frightening. I don’t want to get taken advantage of when I’m too drunk to stop it.

The worst part is these memory lapses don’t happen every time. I’ve been kidding myself, thinking it’s not a problem because of that. It’d almost be better if I blacked out every time, then I’d want to do something about it.
I don’t want to get taken advantage of when I’m too drunk to stop it.
With these new laws that cover rehab, cost was no longer the deciding factor, so I finally did something about it. I only wish I had done it sooner! You don’t have to hit “rock bottom” before you get help.
I was even able to get a note from my doctor excusing me from work, without explaining exactly why. I was able to get help without my coworkers knowing personal details of my life.
Call and talk to someone about this NOW, while you still have a job, a spouse or partner, a car. Call the rehab people today, before something terrible happens to you while you’re blacked out. Don’t wait until it’s all taken from you.”
How Does it Work?
The government would like as many people as possible to overcome alcohol and drug addiction. There are many insurance programs that can either dramatically offset your costs, or completely cover treatment and leave you with a balance of $0.
