My research has focused on costs and utilization patterns for mental health and substance abuse treatment in today’s health care environment. New data are needed to inform policy decisions because the health care delivery system has changed dramatically. For most privately insured Americans, behavioral health (which includes mental health and substance abuse care) is now managed by specialized managed care companies. Treatment patterns have changed dramatically, and patterns criticized in the past as excessively costly, such as prolonged hospitalization of children or automatic 28-day inpatient stays for substance abuse, are almost nonexistent.
