Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Trends

Behavioral health and substance abuse treatment costs are rising, along with demand for these services, driven in part by the opioid abuse epidemic. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration projects that by 2020, mental health and substance abuse (MHSA) treatment spending will total $280.5 billion, a 63% increase from 2009.* Increasing utilization of substance abuse services reveals an opportunity to expand treatment and prevention programs in-house or through partnerships. In addition, hospitals and health systems can respond to these rising costs and greater need by ensuring opioid prescribing patterns meet current guidelines and by instituting care management assistance when pain medications are necessary.
