San Clemente, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/31/2016 --Sovereign Health Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new article that's now live on the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids' website, www.drugfree.org: "The Affordable Care Act's Role in Addiction Treatment for Grown Children." This article, which was written by Sovereign Health writers Dana Connolly, Ph.D., and Susan Logan-McCracken, M.P.W., takes a look at the growing trend of adult children living at home with their parents and the accessibility of healthcare insurance to cover them. For those adult children in need of treatment for mental illness and addiction disorders, insurance coverage is available under the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) of 2008, and both the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, which together comprise the Affordable Care Act.
