Officials push to change federal rule limiting number of beds in addiction facilities

Like many states throughout the country, Ohio has been battling an opioid epidemic for several years and many victims of this epidemic are seeking treatment. With so many Ohioans seeking treatment, it is difficult for treatment facilities to make room for everyone who needs help. This is partly due to a 50-year-old federal rule that states community-based mental-health and addiction treatment centers can't receive Medicaid funding if their facility exceeds 16 beds. While it may not seem like a big deal to be put on a waitlist until a spot opens, this wait can be the difference between life and death for many of these addicts.
