Addiction Treatment in Vermont

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, Vermont showed a total of 4,489 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (4,195 or 93.5%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 399 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Vermont has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only abuse used to be predominant, but in 2010 50% of those admitted to treatment suffer from combinations of drug and alcohol abuse.

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.
