Addiction Treatment in Idaho

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, Idaho showed a total of 5,728 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (5,523 or 96.4%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 558 were under the age of 18. There has been a steady decline in the number of admissions mentioning alcohol and cocaine as substances of abuse and a sharp increase (from 8% in 1992 to 53% in 2005) of admissions for methamphetamine use. 56% of patients cited combinations of drugs and alcohol at treatment admission.

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.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) Support for Community-Based Prevention in Idaho

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 Idaho coalitions received grants from ONDCP:

Blaine County Community Drug Coalition
Drug Free Idaho, Inc.
Kamiah Community Partners Coalition
Kootenai Alliance for Children and Families
Latah County Youth Advocacy Council
Meridian Mayor's Anti-Drug Coalition (MADC)
