USA: Study Finds Funding For Substance Abuse In Indiana Lacking

Donnerstag 11. November 2010 von htm

An Indiana University study (APHA 2010) found that Indiana spends more on the health care consequences of substance abuse than on its prevention.
Eric Wright, director of the Center for Health Policy at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, said that for every dollar Indiana spends on services dealing directly and indirectly with substance abuse, 66 cents are used for health care-related consequences while only 1 cent pays for prevention/intervention initiatives.
