) received treatment at a specialty facility. Therefore, 20.8 million Americans (8.3 percent of the population aged 12 or older) who needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol addiction did not receive treatment at a specialty substance abuse facility in the past year.
  • Of those who wanted treatment, made an effort to get treatment, but did not get it, 37.4 percent said lack of health insurance or inability to pay for treatment was the number one barrier to getting help.

    Closing the Addiction Treatment Gap (CATG) is a national program initiated by the Open Society Institute and involving nine other local and national organizations working to expand addiction treatment. This initiative is designed to create an awareness of--and increase resources to close--an alarming treatment gap: currently, four out of five Americans who need drug and alcohol addiction treatment are unable to get it. The initiative aims to mobilize public support for expanded treatment by increasing public funding, broadening insurance coverage, and achieving greater program efficiency.

    The Open Society Institute, a private operating and grantmaking foundation, works to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. To achieve its mission, OSI seeks to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights. OSI works in over 60 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as in the United States.
