Treatment Episode Data Set
http://wwwdasis.samhsa.gov/webt/tedsweb/tab_year.choose_year_web_table?t_state=TN

TEDS provides information on the demographic and substance abuse characteristics of the 1.9 million annual admissions to treatment for abuse of alcohol and drugs in facilities that report to individual State administrative data systems.

TEDS is an admission-based system, and TEDS admissions do not represent individuals. Thus, for example, an individual admitted to treatment twice within a calendar year would be counted as two admissions.
TEDS does not include all admissions to substance abuse treatment. It includes admissions to facilities that are licensed or certified by the State substance abuse agency to provide substance abuse treatment (or are administratively tracked for other reasons). In general, facilities reporting TEDS data are those that receive State alcohol and/or drug agency funds (including Federal Block Grant funds) for the provision of alcohol and/or drug treatment services.

Data updated quarterly.

National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS)
http://wwwdasis.samhsa.gov/webt/tedsweb/tab_year.choose_year_state_profile?t_state=TN

N-SSATS is an annual survey designed to collect data on the location, characteristics, and use of alcohol and drug abuse treatment facilities and services throughout the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and other U.S. jurisdictions.

N-SSATS is designed to collect information from all facilities in the United States, both public and private, that provide substance abuse treatment.

Data are updated annually (last survey reference date March 30, 2007).
