Addiction Treatment OhioState 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, Ohio showed a total of 35,763 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (320 or 85.8%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 3,001 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Ohio has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 42 percent of all admissions in 1992 to 17 percent in 2010. Admissions for compounded drug and alcohol addictions now account for 54% of those in treatment.

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.
