Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Virginia

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, Virginia showed a total of 19,265 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (18,350 or 95.3%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 1,350 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Virginia has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. Alcohol-only admissions have declined from 26T of all admissions in 1992, to 19% in 2010. Patients suffering from a combination of drug and alcohol abuse now account for 42% of admissions

Virginia Primary Addiction Treatment Admissions: The graph at right depicts substance abuse treatment admissions in Virginia in 2010. The data shows that marijuana is the most commonly cited drug among primary drug treatment admissions in Virginia, followed by cocaine.

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.
