Characteristics of Substance Treatment Admissions
Aged 12 and Older by State or Jurisdiction and Primary
Substance of Abuse: TEDS 2009

This chapter presents data on the demographic characteristics of substance abuse treatment admissions aged 12 and older from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) for admissions according to primary substance of abuse and for individual States and jurisdictions.

As noted previously, comparisons between and across States and jurisdictions should be made with caution. There are many factors (e.g., facilities included, clients included, ability to track multi-service episodes, services offered, and completeness and timeliness of reporting) that can affect comparability. See Appendix A for a full discussion.

Tables 3.1-3.50 present, for each State or jurisdiction reporting TEDS 2009 admissions, the percentage distribution of demographic characteristics (gender, age group, and race/ethnicity) by primary substance of abuse for admissions aged 12 and older.

Figures 8-59 depict, for each individual State and jurisdiction, the percentage distribution of admissions aged 12 and older for selected primary substances for 1999 through 2009.
