1 Of the 1,073 facilities reporting that hospital inpatient services were offered, 49 facilities (5%) whose client counts were reported by another facility were not asked to respond to this question, and 192 facilities (18%) did not respond to this question. Therefore the number of designated beds is based on the responses of 832 facilities.
2 The utilization rate and designated beds per facility are based on 552 facilities (12,678 designated beds and 11,479 clients) that reported both designated beds and clients. Of the 832 facilities that reported designated beds, 34 facilities were excluded from the utilization rate tabulations because they included client counts for other facilities, and 246 facilities were excluded because the number of designated beds was reported as zero.
3 Because substance abuse treatment clients may also occupy non-designated beds, utilization rates may be more than 100 percent.
- -  Quantity is zero.
