  • Ensure that addiction is routinely covered and treated under our nation's health-care system. Twenty percent of Americans between the ages of 12 and 65 lack health insurance, and for those with the disease of addiction, the lack of health insurance is even greater. The combination - insufficient insurance coverage and inadequate public funds for treatment - has created a gap between the number of people who need treatment (23 million) and the number of people who get the treatment they need (2 million).
  • The Closing the Addiction Treatment Gap initiative seeks to ensure that all people who need treatment have access to quality addiction treatment services. The initiative aims to bridge the treatment gap through three strategies: broadening insurance coverage, increasing public funding, and achieving greater program efficiency and quality.

    For more information on the initiative, please visit www.treatmentgap.org.
