Addiction Treatment in MissouriState 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, Missouri showed a total of 19,766 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (118,143 or 91.8%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 1,396 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Missouri has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 46 percent of all admissions in 1992, to 16 percent in 2010. Patients suffering from a combination of drug and alcohol addiction accounted for 46% of admissions in 2010.

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.

Adair County Drug Coalition
Carthage Caring Communities
