When I clicked the link, I was expecting to see it focus exorbitant salaries in boutique treatment programs. It’s a little surprising that this is happening in the program with so much public funding. The current market is rewarding programs with entrepreneurial spirits and that is a double-edged sword. It can be good because it rewards programs that respond aggressively to community need rather than waiting for someone to hand them capital. The downside is obvious, from this article. It can foster an unhealthy emphasis on financial matters that has led to the demise of many programs over the last century.
I hate to say it, but I think we’re going to be seeing more of this.
