Substance Abuse Treatment Programs are Cost Effective
Every $1 spent on substance abuse treatment saves the public $7.
In a review of 500 social programs, drug and alcohol treatment was ranked among the most cost-effective efforts, along with childhood immunizations, preschool education and prenatal care.
According to a study by the Rand Corporation, treatment has also proven to be more cost-effective than other drug control strategies. $34 million dollars invested in treatment would reduce cocaine use as much as federal efforts spending $336 million for interdiction or $246 million for enforcement.
