Each year, millions of people do not get the treatment they need for their addiction to drugs and alcohol. It’s estimated that by 2020, mental and substance use disorders will surpass all physical diseases as a major cause of disability worldwide. A major reason is lack of health coverage or the inability to afford treatment.
We also know that addiction and mental illness are equal-opportunity diseases, and that they affect families regardless of socioeconomic status. And, in spite of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, there still remain financial barriers for those who need treatment. Approximately three years ago, Prototypes began serving women with insurance and those who can pay privately for their care. During this time, we have found a gap in treatment programs in that most either focus on serving those with very few or no resources or those with many resources. Yet, there are women and families who do not qualify for government sponsored treatment programs and who also cannot afford the high costs of many other private programs. These women experience the same issues that often times accompany addiction such as mental illness, domestic violence, and trauma.
In response to this unmet need, Prototypes is preparing to launch a new affordable residential treatment program, called Resolve Recovery, which will provide comprehensive behavioral health services to women. This program will begin serving clients in November. The goal of Resolve Recovery is to meet an important need in our communities by providing affordable treatment to women who do not qualify for government funding and cannot afford the high costs of many other private programs.
Resolve Recovery, located in Hollywood, will offer detoxification and residential treatment services for women struggling with drug or alcohol addiction as well as mental health issues and trauma. The program will provide an affordable alternative that provides the highest level of client-centered treatment at a fraction of the cost of many other facilities. We believe that recovery shouldn’t cost a client or their family everything.
“Prototypes has extensive experiencing reaching and serving women who have nowhere else to go,” shared Cassandra Loch, President and CEO. “Resolve Recovery is part of our vision to continue to serve those with the comprehensive services that we are uniquely equipped to provide.”
