New NAPHS Annual Survey Tracks Behavioral Treatment Trends
Date:5/16/2008

WASHINGTON, May 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Behavioral healthcare systems are playing a major role in responding to the needs of the millions of Americans of all ages who experience psychiatric and substance use conditions each year, according to the latest annual survey from the National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems (NAPHS) released today.

The 2007 NAPHS Annual Survey provides two distinct views of behavioral healthcare delivery. One chapter provides a trend analysis that looks at changes from year to year in hospitals and residential treatment centers reporting over a two-year period. Another chapter provides a snapshot of all members' experiences in 2006. This chapter also presents selected data by set-up-and-staffed bed categories to help organizations compare their own experiences to those of facilities of a similar size.

Trend analysis shows strong demand for behavioral health services. Inpatient hospital admissions, for example, increased 3.4% from 2005 to 2006 (to an average of 2,557) in facilities reporting in both years. Hospital lengths of stay remained steady at 9.6 days in both 2005 and 2006. Trended residential treatment admissions increased 2.3% in the same time frame (to an average of 175).

The survey also demonstrates great diversity of services, levels of care, and payer sources for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults experiencing mental and substance use disorders. In addition to hospital-level care, NAPHS-member facilities provide residential care, partial hospitalization, and outpatient care. These facilities also offer a comprehensive array of community services, including substance use services, special education, housing, and case management. Payer sources include Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, state governments, and others such as juvenile justice systems.

The report is $400--prepaid. Call 202/393-6700, ext. 106, for ordering information or see http://www.naphs.org.

NAPHS advocates for behavioral health and represents provider systems that are committed to the delivery of responsive, accountable, and clinically effective prevention, treatment, and care for children, adolescents, adults, and older adults with mental and substance use disorders. NAPHS members are behavioral healthcare provider organizations that own or manage more than 600 psychiatric hospitals, general hospital psychiatric and addiction treatment units and behavioral healthcare divisions, residential treatment facilities, youth services organizations, and extensive outpatient networks. The association was founded in 1933.
