SAMHSA Spending Estimates

SAMHSA publishes reports that are uniquely suited to the mental health and substance abuse treatment field. SAMHSA provides estimates of national expenditures, analyzes expenditures by various groups, and compiles relevant comparisons. The data presented is particularly helpful in addressing estimates and implications for the future.

Mental Health Services and Substance Use Expenditures

Expenditures and estimates are examined by payer, provider type, setting, or site of care. Comparisons include national expenditures on mental health and substance abuse services versus spending on all health care.
