Fraudulent Schemes In The Name Of Drug Rehab

Fraudulent Schemes In The Name Of Drug Rehab
Drug rehabilitation is a one of the medical services provided to the masses that can prove to be both a blessing and a bane, given the number of fraudulent schemes and scams that have infiltrated this profession, which is why choosing a program that is right for you and best suited to your needs can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Some of the ways that these fake drug rehab centers are conning money from innocent participants are by billing them for unwanted tests or services or billing tests that haven’t even been carried out, like drug and urine screens to check for drug use. Then some companies have been known to misrepresent details of the services provided as well as their location and dates, and even wrongly reporting the results of the tests or other diagnostic procedures, or ordering unnecessary follow up drug and urine screens more often than required. Another avenue for corruption involves the unnecessary prescription of standard drugs including painkillers and anti-depressants.

Unbundling is a process by which some companies have been known to charge customers for a package deal that includes a number of procedures at a discounted rate, which when billed separately for each item can cost the participant more than three times the amount advertised.

Since the definition of Drug free remains quite ambivalent, it is potentially easy to promise a clean slate without mentioning the terms under which the promise is kept, thereby niftily hiding between the lines of fine print. Measuring progress in this regard is therefore quite subjective and whether the program expects its participants to keep attending as a measure of success, or being regular in taking their relevant medicine or even just completing the duration of the program, the arena is fraught with possibilities of skullduggery.

Some rehab programs with more long term goals in mind may consider the abstinence of the participant from drugs after graduating from the program and returning to their homes as a successful outcome, as it might be a psychologically traumatic struggle having to dissociate the memories of their drug abuse linked to their past lives. Even more objective analytical measure of success would be the return of the participant to their usual productive lives that once formed their everyday routine before they started using.

Narconon Fresh Start is a renowned non-profit drug rehabilitation program that has been in the business of delivering health care and treatment for the past forty years or so to the people who’ve fallen prey to the hazards of drug abuse. Narconon Fresh Start produces a 76 percent success rate and promises an all-natural, drug free withdrawal or course of detoxification and supplements it with high doses of vitamins and minerals. Narconon Fresh Start innovatively devised communication skill courses help the participant learn how to communicate well and to perceive situation happening in everyday life correctly and to deal with them, as well as teaching about the ups and downs in life and ultimately, finding your way to happiness.
