California officials review rehab centers after reports of fraud

Officials in California are conducting a statewide review of drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers after reports of fraud surfaced.

CNN and The Center for Investigative Reporting released joints reports stating that some rehab clinics have billed the state for patients who don’t show up, or for patients with no substance abuse problems.

It is distressing when these institutions, which are funded by taxpayers and were created to help those in need, start to take advantage of the state. They are taking for granted the millions of dollars that are put into rehabilitation programs by the citizens of the state.
