The Washington Post (12/18, Firozi) reports that “use of treatment services for mental illness and substance use disorders has skyrocketed,” research indicates. In fact, “a new study from independent nonprofit FAIR Health analyzed individual procedures or services covered by private insurance companies from 2007 to 2017.” Over those ten years, “use of services for behavioral health, which includes substance abuse and mental-health conditions, went up 320 percent.” At the same time, “treatment related to use and dependence on amphetamines climbed more than 3,000 percent, while use of treatment for anxiety diagnoses spiked more than 240 percent.”(SOURCE: APA Headlines)
