Mental Health & Substance Abuse Centers in the US
The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Centers industry comprises establishments that provide long-term residential care and treatment for patients with mental health and substance abuse illnesses. These establishments offer long-term housing, supervision and counseling services. The industry has grown in response to increased awareness of mental health issues and substance abuse diseases. Industry growth has also been supported by the expansion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This reform enabled more Americans to obtain insurance due to the Medicaid enrollment expansion, while also helping to put substance abuse coverage on par with that of medical and surgical services. Moving forward, expanded coverage is expected to continue boosting industry demand. Moreover, as states that have previously resisted opting into the federal Medicaid expansion now opt in, more people will be eligible for Medicaid and more low-income individuals will be able to obtain industry services. Additionally, an increase in the number of people with Medicare coverage is expected to be heightened by an aging population.
This industry includes establishments that primarily provide residential care and treatment for patients with mental illnesses, drug addiction and alcoholism. Industry services include lodging, supervision, evaluation and counseling. Medical services may be available, though these are incidental to counseling, mental rehabilitation and support services.
