Addiction Treatment in Nevada

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, Nevada showed a total of 7,041 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (6,191 or 87.9%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 584 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Nevada has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from over 40% of all admissions in 1992 to 16% in 2010. Patients suffering from a combination of drug and alcohol abuse account for over 50% 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.

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

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 Nevada coalitions received grants from ONDCP:

Nye Communities Coalition
Partners Allied for Community Excellence (P.A.C.E. Coalition)
Walker River Community Coalition
