01/01/2012

The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services, is an annual census of facilities providing substance abuse treatment. The survey collects data on the location, characteristics, and use of alcoholism and drug abuse treatment facilities and services throughout the United States. Over fourteen thousand facilities completed the survey.

The facilities had a one-day census of 1,175,462 clients enrolled in substance abuse treatment on March 31, 2010.

 

There were 81,863 clients under age 18 in treatment on that day, making up 7 percent of the total population in treatment. Forty-three percent of all clients were in treatment for both alcohol and drug abuse, thirty-nine percent were in treatment for drug abuse only, and eighteen percent were in treatment for abuse of alcohol alone. Forty-three percent of all clients were in treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. Core structural characteristics of the substance abuse treatment system such as percentages of the type of entity responsible for the operation of the facility (government, private) and the type of care offered (outpatient, residential, hospital inpatient) have remained stable over the past five years.
