U.S. mental health and addiction treatment centers market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The rising prevalence of mental health disorders in the U.S. is a concerning trend that has been attributed to several factors including societal pressures, increasing rates of substance abuse, and the impact of technology and social media on mental health. These factors have contributed to an increase in anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders, leading to a significant rise in demand for mental health services.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on mental health globally, leading to increased stress, anxiety, and depression due to lockdowns, economic instability, and overall well-being concerns. Disrupted daily routines, increased social isolation, and heightened financial and job-related stressors contributed to a rise in mental disorders. The WHO's World Mental Health Report revealed a 25% increase in depression and anxiety cases in the first year of the pandemic, bringing the total number of people with mental disorders close to 1 billion.

The pandemic has also highlighted the importance of behavioral health, leading to increased awareness and acceptance of behavioral health concerns. There has been a greater emphasis on providing behavioral health support and resources, such as teletherapy and online behavioral health services. According to a survey by the National Council for Behavioral Health, nearly 90% of mental health and addiction care providers in the U.S. reported using telehealth to deliver assistance during the pandemic.

Market players are investing in expanding their operations, developing new facilities, and enhancing their service offerings to meet the growing demand for mental and addiction treatment services. Acadia Healthcare, Universal Health Services, and Behavioral Health Group are major players that have announced plans to expand their operations and invest in new facilities in 2023. This investment is aimed at increasing access to mental and addiction care offerings and improving patient outcomes. In February 2023, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) and Universal Health Services (UHS) announced a joint venture to construct a new 144-bed behavioral health hospital in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania. The facility will be located across from the LVH-Muhlenberg campus and is intended to cater to the growing demand for high-quality behavioral healthcare offerings for seniors, adults, and adolescents.

Disorder Insights

By disorder, the mood disorder segment held the largest share of 23.7% in 2022.Mood disorders are a prevalent mental illness that impacts an individual's persistent emotional state and can be classified as affective disorders.According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it is estimated that 21.4% of U.S. adults experience a mood disorder at some point in their lives. Moreover, the segment growth is being driven by increasing awareness and diagnosis of mood disorders, advances in treatment methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication management, and greater insurance coverage for behavioral disorders treatment through the Affordable Care Act. These driving factors have led to a greater demand for specialized care centers for mood disorders during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the anxiety disorder segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. According to data from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders impact 6.8 million adults and over 31.9% of adolescents aged between 13 and 18 years old in 2021. These statistics emphasize the significant impact of anxiety disorders on both age groups in the U.S. and highlight the need for effective treatment and support for affected individuals. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has heightened anxiety and stress levels, creating an uptick in demand for anxiety disorder treatment and support, thereby driving the segment's growth.

Treatment Centers Insights

By services, the outpatient treatment centers segment held the largest share of 42.0% in 2022. The segment is also expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for outpatient treatment centers has been on the rise in recent years due to the increasing prevalence of behavioral disorders and addiction issues in the U.S. According to the National Institute on Drug Misuse, there are over 14,500 drug abuse and addiction treatment facilities in the U.S., with outpatient treatment being a common option. Outpatient programs provide structured care to those struggling with addiction while enabling them to maintain social and professional responsibilities. Studies have shown that outpatient treatment can significantly increase the likelihood of long-term recovery for individuals with behavioral disorders.

The rising demand for outpatient mental health services has created an opportunity for providers, who are now expanding their services and introducing new and innovative approaches to treatment For instance, in April 2023 Hanley Center a behavioral health center launched a Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to address the pressing need for outpatient services for people with mental disorders.

Age Group Insights

In 2022, the adult age group segment held the largest share of 39.6%. As per the National Institute on Drug Abuse, individuals above the age of 18 are more susceptible to mental and addiction disorders compared to younger age groups. This is mainly attributed to the various life stressors that come with aging, such as changes in relationships, financial strain, and physical well-being concerns. As a result, there is a growing need for accessible and effective behavioral and addiction treatment offerings that can address the unique needs of this demographic.
