2. Trends in Substance Abuse Treatment Admissions: 1994-1999

Trend data are invaluable in monitoring changing patterns in substance abuse treatment admissions. These patterns reflect underlying changes in substance abuse in the population, and have important implications for resource allocation and program planning.

Trends in Primary Substance of Abuse

Table 2.1 and Figure 1. In 1999, TEDS treatment admissions were dominated by four substances: alcohol, opiates (primarily heroin), cocaine, and marijuana/hashish. These substances together accounted for 91 percent of all 1999 TEDS admissions.
