TREATMENT FACILITIES HAVE BEEN
FORCED TO WRITE A "SCHINDLER'S LIST"
WITH NO WAY TO STOP IT FROM GROWING.
THE TIME FOR CHANGE IS NOW.
RecoveryReformNOW is an organization dedicated to advocating and advancing policy reforms for the treatment of substance use disorder, from removing access barriers to the delivery of treatment, to stem the tide of the national addiction epidemic.
We have an epidemic in the United States and it is not being adequately addressed.
This epidemic has swept across the nation right in front of our eyes, taking lives with it. This disease entangles the lives of its victims, quickly and without remorse. We need Substance Use Disorder (SUD) to be recognized and regarded by the health insurance companies as the disease that it is.
In the midst of our nation’s addiction epidemic, health insurance companies continue to deny and limit coverage for treatment, and selectively approve coverage for detox services. They are consistently out of compliance with Mental Health Parity law, which prohibits health insurance companies providing mental health or substance use disorder benefits from imposing less favorable benefit limitations on those benefits than on medical/surgical benefits. We want equal coverage.
Parity = equality.
When someone with SUD realizes they need help, there's no time to delay treatment. It’s nearly impossible to get it. Our hands are tied and our “Schindler’s List” is growing.
Those seeking help at their greatest time of need are left by their insurance carriers, and families are left without hope that their loved-ones will ever get well.
Those with substance use disorder won’t get well in a system like this. Treatment facilities can’t provide proper care like this. The world can’t afford this. We need Recovery ReformNOW.
This is our campaign; to enlighten, engage and encourage you to take a stand and demand recovery reform before more lives are lost.
THE HARD TRUTH

The best way to get in the fight is to stay up-to-date on what we're up against and any progress made.
