Although the recession negatively affected industry revenue and wages, rehabilitation clinics have largely recovered, despite a slight dip in 2012 resulting from a drop in federal funding of Medicare and Medicaid, due to a rise in premiums. Moreover, the improving economic environment is forecast to boost revenue for the Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Clinics industry during the five years to 2020. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 is expanding private and government coverage of industry services, thereby bolstering demand. In turn, companies will continue to enter the industry due to an increasing focus on outpatient services, which are less costly than inpatient care and more desirable among insurance providers, supporting revenue growth.
This industry comprises clinics with medical staff that primarily provide outpatient services related to diagnosing and treating alcohol, drug and other substance abuse. For-profit and nonprofit establishments are included, but this industry excludes facilities that treat inpatients.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
