My husband who never had family supports became victim a scheme called “patient brokering.”With the growing number of drug treatment facilities, many unscrupulous players in the treatment industry are participating in kickback schemes known as patient brokering or “body brokering.” In return for referring a patient to a drug treatment facility, the broker receives a generous compensation of $500 to $5,000
Some go as far as to try to set up clients !
This did not happen to my husband but if he spoke to the recruiter when he had a bad day oe moment his immediate objective was to get him back in treatment despite if he had used a substance or not . Despite the gains he was making in real life. Despite him now having a supportive wife abs needed to actually live abs face life at this point.
They try to get clients to leave an existing facility and qualify for another because they have relapsed. My husband was sent everywhere and encouraged to stay as long as possible and come again and again These brokers troll AA meetings, coffee shops in popular rehab towns and, detox and rehab facilities.
This corrupt practice by players with no credentials in drug treatment, other than experience using substances themselves, has been perpetuated by a combination of events. This includes legislature that needs tighter boundaries, more oversight of treatment centers and stronger regulation of sober houses And rehabilitation recruiters .
