A Better Tomorrow Becomes One of the First Rehabilitation Clinics in the Nation to Offer Financing for Its Drug, Alcohol and Gambling Treatment Programs
Date:5/14/2008

MURRIETA, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- For many years, consumers have been able to take out loans to finance tummy tucks, breast enhancements and other elective cosmetic surgeries, but they haven't been able to borrow money to pay for drug or alcohol treatment services that could save their lives.

As a result, many drug and alcohol addicts haven't been able to get the treatment they need.

The federal government is aware of the problem. In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the federal agency that provides grant funding for drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers across the country, conducted a survey in 2006 and found that 45 percent of addicts were unable to afford treatment for their addictions.

But help is on the way. This week, Murrieta, Calif.-based A Better Tomorrow became one of the first rehabilitation clinics in the country to offer consumer financing for its residential and outpatient treatment programs.

"If you have good credit, we can finance your drug, alcohol or gambling treatment program for as little as $300 to $400 per month," said Jerrod Menz, A Better Tomorrow's president. "This is practically unheard of in the substance abuse treatment industry."

While most major insurers provide addiction treatment as part of their mental health coverage, many are reducing the amount of coverage they provide, thereby shifting more and more of the financial burden to their members. This makes it that much more imperative that patients needing addiction treatment have a way to finance their treatment.

"If they can't afford treatment in a private clinic, their only option is to go to a government or non-profit treatment program, but space in those programs is often limited," Menz said.

Based in Murrieta, Calif., A Better Tomorrow has the highest level of accreditation that can be obtained by a drug or alcohol treatment center. The clinic is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), placing it in the top 5 percent of drug and alcohol treatment centers in California. For more information about A Better Tomorrow, please contact Jerrod Menz at (800) 757-9867. Additional information is available on the clinic's website at http://www.abttc.com/.
