Audit of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's FindTreatment.gov
Substance use disorders (SUDs) impact the lives of millions of Americans. Drug overdose deaths in the United States increased by 28.5 percent during the 12-month period ending in April 2021. An individual who experiences an SUD may also experience a co-occurring mental disorder and vice versa. Nearly one in five U.S. adults (52.9 million in 2020) lives with a mental illness. In accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act (P.L. 114-255, § 9006), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) maintains FindTreatment.gov, which is a searchable, online database of facility locations where individuals can seek substance use disorder and mental health treatment in the United States and U.S. Territories. We will conduct an audit to determine whether SAMHSA reported on FindTreatment.gov accurate, complete, and timely information on SUD and mental health treatment facilities.
