Cross-Site Data Presentation: Treatment for Substance Use Disorders (2015)
Treatment admissions data provide indicators of the health consequences of drug use and their impact on the treatment system (NIDA 2014). Eleven of the 12 NDEWS Sentinel Community Epidemiologists (SCEs) were able to provide the NDEWS Coordinating Center with 2015 treatment admissions data from their local sources; Atlanta Metro was the only site with no available data on 2015 treatment admissions. Note that the definition of the populations covered by each local treatment data source varies; however, the majority are based on admissions to programs receiving public funds.
