Drug and Alcohol Rehab in New HampshireState 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, New Hampshire showed a total of 5,237 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (4,909 or 93.7%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 431 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, New Hampshire has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 40% of all admissions in 1992 to 14% in 2010. In the same time drug-only admissions have gone from 7% to 44%.

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.
