Drug and Alcohol Rehab in MississippiState 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, Mississippi showed a total of 5,037 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (3,795 or 75.3%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment in that period of time, 318 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Mississippi has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 29% of all admissions in 1995, to 19% in 2010. 59% of patients admitted in 2010 suffered from both alcohol and drug 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.

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 2011, the following Mississippi coalitions received grants from ONDCP:
