Addiction Treatment in Arizona

State treatment data for substance use disorders are derived from two primary sources-an annual one-day census in N-SSATS and annual addiction treatment admissions from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS). In the 2010 N-SSATS survey, Arizona showed a total of 27,599 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (82.2%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 1,068 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Arizona has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Drug-only admissions have increased from 15 percent in 1998, to 35 percent in 2010. The abuse of methamphetamine has also gone from below 10% in the 90's to over 20% of admissions today.

The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) is an annual survey of facilities providing substance abuse treatment. It is conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). N-SSATS is designed to collect data on the location, characteristics, services offered, and number of clients in treatment at alcohol and drug abuse treatment facilities (both public and private) throughout the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and other U.S. jurisdictions.

Recognizing that local problems require local solutions, Drug Free Communities (DFC) organizations mobilize communities to prevent youth drug use by creating local data-driven strategies to reduce drug use in the community. ONDCP works to foster the growth of new coalitions and support existing coalitions through the DFC grants. In FY 2011, the following Arizona coalitions received grants from ONDCP:
