Does NSDUH collect data about the utilization of mental health services by a specific program?

NSDUH does not currently collect data by specific program. Other SAMHSA surveys may have the information you are looking for.

The National Mental Health Services Survey (N-MHSS) surveys public and private mental health specialty facilities. This includes psychiatric hospitals; nonfederal general hospitals with separate psychiatric units; U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers; residential treatment centers for children and adults; community mental health centers; outpatient, day treatment, or partial hospitalization mental health facilities; and other multi-setting mental health facilities.

The Mental Health Client-Level Data (MH-CLD) gives information on patients of some mental health treatment facilities. It provides information on their mental health diagnoses; mental health treatment services and outcomes; and demographic and substance use characteristics. Only those in facilities that report to individual state administrative data systems are included.

The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) is an annual census of treatment facilities. Information is collected on the location, organization, structure, services, and utilization of substance abuse treatment facilities in the United States.
