October 21-27 is Addiction Treatment Week. At Barton Associates, we want to thank the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) for sponsoring this important initiative to spread awareness about the disease and its treatments, take action toward patient recovery, and encourage more providers to pursue the addiction medicine specialty.

Providers have been called upon to help close a treatment gap that leaves the majority of addiction sufferers untreated every year. With that in mind, we want to do our part in helping physicians and advanced-practice clinicians continuously improve addiction treatment in the U.S.

These ramifications go beyond the numbers — and patients need your care now. In this infographic, we explore facts and figures behind the American addiction epidemic, what you can do to keep helping, and how Barton can guide you through next steps. Check it out below:

Addiction Epidemic V4 1

How will you maximize your role in closing the addiction treatment gap? We hope our insight was helpful in your ongoing efforts to provide care and guidance to patients in need across the country.
