To identify and address gaps in substance use disorder (SUD) treatment capacity, state and federal policymakers need information on the need and demand for different SUD levels of care. To develop this information, this project fielded a survey of Single State Agencies for Substance Use Services and Medicaid agencies to every state and the District of Columbia. It collected information on how patient placement criteria are operationalized, and the degree to which data are collected and can be used to determine treatment needs across states. The study identified an opportunity to collect aggregate de-identified information from a subset states on treatment needs by level of care.
