A total of 1,132 substance abuse treatment facilities (or 8 percent of all substance abuse treatment facilities) operated an Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) in 2008, a percentage that has remained constant since 2002. Of OTPs that provided methadone maintenance and/or buprenorphine maintenance services, 52.4 percent served only clients in the maintenance program and 47.6 percent served clients in the maintenance program as well as other substance abuse clients. Facilities with OTPs that served clients in addition to those in the maintenance program also offered a greater variety of treatment types and services than those that served only the maintenance client.
