Abstract

Objectives. This study examined trends in funding and use of alcohol and drug abuse treatment at specialty facilities between 1990 and 1994. Methods. The 1990 and 1994 National Drug and Alcohol Treatment Unit Surveys were used to estimate annual funding and number of clients in treatment. Results. Public funding increased by 5%, whereas private funding decreased by 28% in real terms between 1990 and 1994. The number of publicly and privately funded clients decreased slightly Conclusions. The rapid growth in private and public sector substance abuse funding during the 1980s has not continued into the 1990s
