According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the prevalence of mental and substance use disorders is high. Nearly 1 out of every 5 adults in the United States has a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety disorders, or schizophrenia, and approximately 22 million have been classified with substance dependence or abuse.
