Local, county, or community government-run substance abuse treatment facilities in the US had a total client of 1,356,015 in 2017, of which 62,862 were under the age of 18. Detailed below are more statistics about the annual residents in drug rehabilitation facilities and patients receiving mental health therapy services annually. The screenshots of the graphs from where the figures were taken from are also provided in the document attached.

NUMBER OF ANNUAL RESIDENTS IN DRUG REHABILITATION (REHAB) FACILITIES

  • In 2017, there were 1,356,015 clients across local, county, and community government-run substance abuse treatment facilities in the US.
  • In 2017, there were 62,862 non-adult clients, or clients who are under 18 years of age, in treatment from substance abuse in the US.
  • Approximately 2.5 million people received drug addiction or substance abuse treatment in the US, according to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health report; however, millions are still in need of treatment as 21.7 million people aged 12 and older need substance use treatment.
  • Rehab programs or treatment claim to have a 90% success rate; however, according to the American Addiction Centers, evaluating the success of rehab programs "should be judged on the quality of care they provide, even after treatment, not merely the quantity of clients they see," which means testimonials and client recommendations can say much more about a rehab facility than the statistics they put into their success rate.

NUMBER OF PATIENTS RECEIVING MENTAL HEALTH THERAPY SERVICES ANNUALLY

  • According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are 8.9 million adult Americans who have co-occurring mental illness and a substance use disorder, and only 44% (or 3.92 million) of them received either mental health treatment or substance use treatment in the past year. (Please see calculations below.)
  • Only 13.5% or 1.20 million people received both mental health treatment and substance use treatment, while 37.6% (or 3.35 million) did not receive any treatment at all. (Please see calculations below.)
  • Only 41% of Americans who had a mental disorder in the past year received professional health care or other services.
  • In 2018, 47.6 million people in the US experienced mental illness, and 11.4 million people experienced serious mental illness.

ADDITIONAL INSIGHTS

  • Over 14,500 specialized substance abuse treatment facilities are present in the United States, providing counseling, behavioral therapy, medication, case management, and other forms of care.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

To determine the average or approximate number of annual residents in drug rehabilitation (rehab) facilities and the number of patients receiving mental health therapy services annually in the US, we started our research by looking for precompiled information from industry reports, government databases, and relevant publications, like the American Addiction Center, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the American Psychological Association, among others. Based on the available information in the public domain, we made the following assumptions and calculations:
  • We have assumed that drug rehabilitation (rehab) facilities and the local, county, or community government-run substance abuse treatment facilities in the U.S. are the same.
  • We have also assumed that mental health treatment and mental health therapy services are the same.
Here are our calculations for the number of patients receiving mental health therapy services annually:
  • 8.9 million adults who have both mental illness and a substance use disorder X 44% received treatment either for mental illness or substance use = 3.916 million or 3.92 million people received treatment for either their mental health or substance abuse
  • 8.9 million adults who have both mental illness and substance use disorder X 13.5% received treatment for both = 1.20 million people received treatment for both mental illness and substance use disorder
  • 8.9 million adults who have both mental illness and a substance use disorder X 37.6% did not receive any treatment = 3.3464 million or 3.35 million people did not receive any treatment for their mental illness or substance use disorder
