History of the EMP Series
Fourteen EMP Series addiction conferences have been held over the years in Florida. These events have been successful in helping addiction treatment center executives learn and understand the laws, regulations, and restrictions in Florida.
By bringing CEOs, directors and outreach coordinators together under one roof, the following topics are discussed in detail:
- Insurance companies and how to get higher reimbursements
- Drug rehab SEO and how to compete with larger treatment facilities
- Reasons why marketing has failed in the past
- Importance of proper website structure
- Mobile rankings and why they may have dropped
- Social media and networking opportunities
- Ranking in the top three of Google Maps
- Call tracking, branding, etc. to promote your facility
California is Facing New Laws, Rules and Regulations
Similar to what happened in Florida, California is now facing new rules and regulations to address the drug and alcohol epidemic as well as patient brokering and unethical treatment practices. Each day in CA, 11 people die from drug abuse. Experts estimate that roughly 3 million people have substance abuse issues, and over 40,000 emergency room visits are drug-related. Substance abuse is costing our economy millions of dollars.
Consider that in 2015, California seized:
- 800 pounds of heroin
- 5,000 pounds of meth
- 18,000 pounds of cocaine
- 413,000 pounds of marijuana
- 300,000 ecstasy pills
Some drugs are made in illegal laboratories, but many others come from global shipping ports. These ports make it easy for drug smugglers to move illicit drugs into our country and distribute them in California.
When drugs are readily available, it increases the chances for experimentation among our youth. Once a person starts abusing drugs, they can easily become addicted. The only way to stop addiction is with a comprehensive drug rehabilitation program.
