According to SAMHSA’s latest Behavioral Health Barometer, released earlier this month, more patients are receiving medication-assisted therapy. Between 2011 and 2015, methadone use increased by 16%, with nearly 357,000 people now receiving the medication, and use of buprenorphine more than doubled, with nearly 76,000 people now receiving the medication. But treatment delivery for substance use disorders still falls short overall, considering the size of the population in need of care.
