Global Addiction Treatments Market: Snapshot

The menace of drugs has been dogging our society for decades on end now. On one hand, authorities and police are trying to curtail the problem with an iron hand, on the other hand, healthcare institutes and pharmaceutical companies are pulling out all stops to cure addiction.

This has spawned the addition treatment market which has expanded incrementally over the years. Treatments can happen in different settings and can entail both medication and behavioral therapies. Depending upon the severity of the situation, lengths of treatment can vary. Since, drug addiction is mostly a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, one treatment is usually not enough. It is usually lengthy requiring multiple interventions and time-to-time monitoring.

Some of the common medicines used in treatment of drugs are methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, which are administered to those addicted to opioids. Nicotine preparations in the form of patches, lozenges, gum, and nasal spray and the medications varenicline and bupropion are meant to treat tobacco addiction. Besides, behavioral therapies are leveraged to help addicts cope with drug cravings and thwart a relapse.

The U.S. is one of the main markets for addiction treatments on account of a sizeable proportion of addicts. However, the market might receive a major setback if the new government manages to pass the bill repealing the Affordable Care Act that provides substantial coverage for drug addiction treatment. This would likely affect nearly 1.3 million people having mental-health and substance abuse disorders as per estimates.
