Treatment for Addiction in OklahomaState 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, Oklahoma showed a total of 14,804 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (13,071 or 88.3%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 1,336 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Oklahoma has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 57% of all admissions in 1992, to 18% in 2010. Patients suffering from solely from drug abuse accounted for 57% of admissions in 2010. Drug-only admissions used to account for fewer than 2% of patients in 1992 but are now as much as 35% today.

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.
