When undergoing substance abuse treatment, individual people can be admitted and discharged from treatment multiple times. TEDS comprises demographic and drug history information about these individuals. TEDS-A records the admissions, and TEDS-D records the discharges. The two data sets are separate but linkable. TEDS-A data collection began in 1992, and TEDS-D began in 2000. These data sets include:
TEDS compiles client-level data for substance abuse treatment admissions from state agency data systems. State data systems collect data from facilities about their admissions to treatment and discharges from treatment.
Many of the facilities that report TEDS data receive state funds or federal block grant funds to provide alcohol and drug treatment services. State laws require substance abuse treatment programs to report publicly funded admissions. Some states only collect publicly funded admissions. Other states can collect privately funded admissions from facilities that receive public funding. States then report these data from their state administrative systems to SAMHSA.
Recently, several new data elements were added to TEDS to provide National Outcome Measures (NOMs). Nearly all states are currently providing the TEDS admission and discharge data, including the NOMs data elements. States not currently submitting both admission and discharge data are expected to begin submitting complete TEDS data soon.
Annual reports are produced every year, presenting information from a single data source.
These reports focus on providing in-depth analysis on a specific subset compared to a larger dataset.
Short Reports are one-time publications that include facts, tables, graphics, and “In Brief” summaries to provide context on important topics.
Spotlights are used to highlight a single important finding and contextualize it using very brief text and minimal graphics.
Data files are made available by SAMHSA for research and statistical purposes. Available files may include: Codebooks and Delimited, R, SAS, SPSS, or STATA data sets. Read more.
