High Adoption of Telecommuting in Healthcare Sector to Improve Quality of Addiction Treatment

While the global population is currently at war with the novel COVID-19 pandemic, addiction is another major threat to the public health that continues to affect millions of individuals worldwide. Substance abuse, tobacco, alcohol, and drug addiction are on the rise at the global level, particularly in developing nations such as China and India. Each year, nearly 6 million people across the world succumb to tobacco addiction and the numbers continue to rise at a consistent pace. The steady rise in the number of annual tobacco-related deaths across the world has led to considerable regulatory and market pressure to minimize tobacco consumption and addiction.

At present, apart from tobacco addiction, the global number of alcohol and drug addiction cases continue to move in the upward trajectory due to which, the demand for addiction treatment is increasing. In the current scenario, the adoption of new technological advancements such as telecommuting within the healthcare sector is on the rise. At present, the number of collaborations between application developers and healthcare experts is growing at a rapid pace and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

As per the National Institute of Drug Abuse, nearly 54% of the addicts are below the age of 18 in the U.S. The alarming statistics in other regions of the world as well have compelled government authorities to raise awareness regarding addiction treatment– another factor that is expected to provide an impetus for growth of the global addiction treatment market. At the back of these factors and continual focus on research and development activities, the global addiction treatment market is expected to attain a market value of ~US$ 12 Bn by the of 2030.
