TEDS-D is part of the TEDS series, which was designed to provide annual data on the number and characteristics of persons admitted to public and private substance abuse treatment programs receiving public funding. TEDS-D provides descriptive information about discharges from alcohol or drug treatment facilities including the reason for discharge and the length of time in treatment. Demographic information such as gender, race, ethnicity, education, and employment status are also included in the data. Substances reported in TEDS-D include alcohol, cocaine and crack, marijuana and hashish, heroin, nonprescription methadone, other opiates and synthetics, stimulants, tranquilizers, sedatives, and over-the-counter medications, among others.
TEDS is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
