Addiction Treatment in MichiganState 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, Michigan showed a total of 42,174 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (39,023 or 92.5%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 2,978 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Michigan has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 40 percent of all admissions in 1992, to 24 percent in 2010. 41% of patients admitted in 2010 suffered from a combination of drug and alcohol addictions.

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.
