drug-addiction-facts

(BOISE, ID) – An estimated 13,000 Idahoans struggling with addictions to alcohol or drugs could be eligible for treatment under the country’s new health care overhaul. The number being treated could double if the state allows a Medicare expansion, but lawmakers are reluctant to boost benefits for low income residents without the revenue to support it. Opponents say the expansion could overburden an already inadequate health care system.
