Mental Health & Substance Abuse Clinics in the US
Public appreciation has risen for the economic, personal and societal benefits of treatment for mental illness and substance abuse. Amid a treatment shift from inpatient to outpatient settings, a growing opioid epidemic and increased health insurance coverage, demand for the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Clinics industry has grown over the five years to 2019. The worsening opioid crisis and some general de-stigmatization of mental illness have increased the number of people seeking treatment. Unfortunately, demand for industry services has risen faster than the supply of labor, resulting in a shortage of psychiatrists, especially in low-income and rural areas. During the outlook period to 2024, this employment shortage is expected to limit industry growth.
