Fast facts about addiction training and treatment - or the lack thereof

If you wonder how we got into the substance use disorder pickle, take a look at some of the data, below:

  • Less than 15 percent of medical schools have any courses on substance use disorder.
  • Data shows that more than 10 million full-time workers have a substance use disorder.
  • Substance misuse costs the country $442 billion annually in lost productivity and other costs.
  • About one in 10 people with a substance use disorder is treated; of those who do get help, just a third receive treatment that meets minimal standards of care, according to the U.S. Surgeon General.
  • The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and the Affordable Care Act now mandate that substance-use treatment be covered by insurers at levels comparable to coverage for other illnesses. Yet commercial insurers paid for only about 27 percent of all addiction treatment in 2016.
