If you are interested in knowing more about how the Affordable Care Act has changed here is a resource that tells the Insurance side of Addiction. This quote is direct from the publisher:
Our resource provides information on your healthcare rights when it comes to addiction treatment and how changes with the Affordable Care Act have changed insurance coverage.
We believed that this was an important topic to cover because while addiction affects nearly 24 million people over the age of 12, only 11.2% of those individuals receive treatment from a private facility (SAMHSA, 2009). A likely reason attributed to that low percentage is that it's not uncommon for private recovery facilities to cost in the tens of thousands of dollars.

NOTE FROM ADDICTSHUNS:
Please be wise when selecting Insurance programs in regards to your health and well being. Most of all there are free programs, such as A.A., that have proven methods in the area of overcoming addiction of any type, and can supplement and complete any facility treatment programs. Just use your head!
