This chapter highlights important findings in the 2008 TEDS data. The tables include all items in the TEDS Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets for 2008. (See Appendix B for a complete data dictionary.) Data are tabulated as percentage distributions of treatment admissions according to primary substance of abuse.

The Minimum Data Set consists of 19 items that include:

The Supplemental Data Set consists of 15 items that include psychiatric, social, and economic measures.

Definitions and classifications used in the Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets are detailed in Appendix B.

Not all States report all data items in the Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets. Most States report the Minimum Data Set for all or nearly all TEDS admissions. However, the items reported from the Supplemental Data Set vary greatly across States.

The figures in this chapter represent counts of admissions for each primary substance of abuse by gender, age, and race/ethnicity (non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Black, Hispanic of Mexican origin, Hispanic of Puerto Rican origin,1 American Indian/Alaska Native,2 and Asian/Pacific Islander).


1 Hispanics of Mexican and Puerto Rican origin made up 70 percent of all Hispanic admissions.
2 Alaska did not report TEDS data for 2008.
