Addiction Treatment in WyomingState 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, Wyoming showed a total of 3,248 clients in addiction treatment, the majority of whom (2,897 or 89.2%) were in outpatient addiction treatment. Of the total number of clients in treatment on this date, 295 were under the age of 18.

Across the years for which TEDS data are available, Wyoming has seen a substantial shift in the constellation of problems present at treatment admission. In 2010 out of the 3,248 clients admitted in Wyoming to a substance abuse treatment facility, over 38.1% were admitted for alcohol addiction, while 44% were admitted for alcohol and drug abuse combined and 17.9% were admitted solely for drug abuse.

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.

The Drug Free Communities (DFC) Program

Recognizing that local problems require local solutions, Drug Free Communities (DFC) organizations mobilize communities to prevent youth drug use by creating local data-driven strategies to reduce drug use in the community. ONDCP works to foster the growth of new coalitions and support existing coalitions through the DFC grants. In 2011, the following Wyoming coalitions received grants from ONDCP:

Natrona County Prevention Coalition
Substance Abuse Advisory Council (Gilette)
