A total of 2.5 million persons received treatment, but many more need it and facilities are filled to capacity. However, insurance coverage for rehab is limited. As a result, most of the tab is paid by government/state agencies. High end niches have emerged for the well-heeled (think Hollywood celebrities) and new niches are emerging in areas such as: sex addiction, problem gamblers, Internet addiction, and nicotine addiction.
