Recovery Unplugged is pleased and excited to announce that we are now accepting Bitcoin to help prospective clients and their loved ones more readily pay for the cost of lifesaving addiction treatment. This makes our organization one of a select few treatment centers in the country that allows payment for substance abuse treatment through cryptocurrency.
In a year that has seen a record high of over 81,000 overdose deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there has also been a steady increase in cryptocurrency investment and utilization, and Bitcoin has proven to be one of the fastest-growing types on the market.
Recovery Unplugged is hopeful and optimistic that this payment innovation will help make addiction treatment accessible to more of the over 19 million Americans who struggle with substance use disorder (SUD). It’s estimated that over 11 percent of Americans currently hold some amount of Bitcoin, and that there are over one million daily Bitcoin transactions. Recovery Unplugged has officially established its Bitcoin transaction infrastructure and is readily accepting the cryptocurrency through Coinbase.
