    This article is nothing more than an attempt to smear the industry and those who work tirelessly to help those in need of alcohol and substance abuse treatment. In the article Clean Adventures is singled out with malice based on hearsay that is unsubstantiated, incorrect and supported by uncorroborated information. The claims made against Clean Adventures are inaccurate, defamatory and made purely with malicious intent.

    Clean Adventures has never advised any patient to use their business address on an insurance application, they have always billed only what is usual and customary for services provided within their region, and they have never in their 10 years of operation ever paid for a patient’s premium. Clean Adventures has never been under investigation, has never been charged with a crime, and has never had a grievance filed against them with the City of Prescott or the State of Arizona.

    In 2014 Clean Adventures was awarded JCAHO accreditation, the highest award for excellence in the health care field. Accredidation by the Joint Commision identifies Clean Adventures as meeting rigorous performance standards in delivering quality care in a safe environment administered through ethical practices while focusing on continually improving health care by setting the highest standards for health care quality. JCAHO is an internationally recognized symbol of quality within the healthcare industry.

    Please see the links below for an accurate representation of what Clean Adventures offers, the valuable work they do, and the quality of treatment they provide both ethically and honestly.

    The article states that “Health Net representatives, citing ongoing litigation, would not discuss the case with The Arizona Republic”. Clearly the information is uncorroborated. Furthermore it is inaccurate and defamatory at best.

    This article and it’s defamatory statements are an attempt by Health Net to distract from their refusal to fulfill their legal obligation to pay for services legitimately rendered by Arizona providers. When Health Net ceased reimbursing for services in early January 2016, Clean Adventures in good faith and in the best interest of their patients continued to provide services to their Health Net patients through to their graduation from the program without reimbursement, for a duration up to six months in many cases. To date Clean Adventures has yet to be reimbursed for any services provided to Health Net insured patients after early January 2016.

    Please see the link below for an understanding of the Health Net misconduct that led the Arizona class action lawsuit.

    Please see the link below for an accurate representation of the quality of service Health Net provides it’s members and the healthcare providers that serve it’s members.

    In the interest of practicing journalism both ethically and honestly, this article should be redacted and republished with all hearsay and unsubstantiated statements removed.

    Thank you for your time, attention and understanding of the malice and underlying motive this article clearly presents.
