Highlights

This report presents national-level data from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) for admissions in 2011 and trend data for 2001 to 2011. The report provides information on the demographic and substance abuse characteristics of admissions to treatment aged 12 and older for abuse of alcohol and/or drugs in facilities that report to individual State administrative data systems. It is important to note that values in charts, narrative lists, and percentage distributions are calculated using actual raw numbers and rounded for presentation in this report; calculations using rounded values may produce different results.


For 2011, 1,844,719 substance abuse treatment admissions aged 12 and older were reported to TEDS by 46 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. (Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, and Mississippi had submitted no data or incomplete data for 2011 by October 15, 2012, and are excluded from this report.)
