The US prescription drug business is a $500 billion industry whose rising prices carry profound consequences for patients, caregivers, employers and taxpayers across the nation. In the United States, average prices of leading brand-name drugs are two to four times higher than prices charged in other wealthy countries, raising questions as to what Americans are getting for the extra expense. On the other hand, healthy industry returns have arguably fueled life-savinginnovation. With the advent of ever more targeted and powerful treatments, including cell- and gene-based therapies with multi-million-dollar price tags, the need for sensible drug pricing policies will only intensify.The Right Price sheds light on the controversial topic of drug pricing by providing an accessible guide to pharmaceutical markets and analytic techniques used to measure the value of drug therapies. It illustrates the need for value-based pricing through real-life stories of patients and their experiences with the drug industry and explains why simple solutions like price controls and the importation of cheaper drugs from other countries are problematic. This volume describes howresearchers and policy makers have pursued drug valuation efforts in the past, and lays out a series of recommendations, based on years of shared author experience serving on national drug policy platforms, for how to further improve pharmaceutical value assessment in the United States.With unique industry insights and clear narrative, The Right Price unveils why the pricing of drugs continues to be so challenging and how public and private officials can create more informed policies to achieve the right balance between drug pricing and value.Addiction is the United States' most pervasive and damaging public health problem, yet most Americans receive care that results in a failure rate that is both astronomically high and shielded from public view.The New Addiction Treatment examines the current state of the addiction treatment business and explores the reasons why (unlike those for all other behavioral, psychological, or neurological disorders) the treatment of addiction has been stagnant and little improved since the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935.After describing the size and scope of the problem and examining actual recovery rates for those who undergo treatment, David A. Patterson Silver Wolf asserts that there are effectively two kinds of treatment regimes in the United States: those that medical doctors receive, and those for the rest of us. The former has about an 80% success rate, the latter about an 80% failure rate.Drawing from his own experience as a former patient and person in long-term recovery, as well as his 22 years as a clinician, professor, and researcher, Patterson Silver Wolf describes many of the impediments to effective treatment today. This book offers a plausible and cost-effective way to disrupt the dismal status quo and realistically aspire to a higher success rate for everyone who receives professional help for a substance use disorder.
