N.Y. expands mobile addiction treatment

New York State has announced an additional $1.6 million in funding for mobile addiction treatment – vans that provide treatment space for people with transportation problems or shuttle them back and forth to treatment centers.

Lack of transportation is often a huge problem for people suffering from addiction, and makes it difficult for them to keep to a treatment schedule.

The new funding will also allow for increased treatment via telemedicine.
