Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS)

Resource Description

When undergoing substance abuse treatment, individual people can be admitted and discharged from treatment multiple times. TEDS comprises demographic and drug history information about these individuals. TEDS-A records the admissions, and TEDS-D records the discharges. The two data sets are separate but linkable. TEDS-A data collection began in 1992, and TEDS-D began in 2000. These data sets include:

  • Data for individuals who are 12 years old or older
  • Records for an admission or discharge, not individual people
  • Demographic information, such as age, sex, race/ethnicity, and employment status
  • Substance abuse characteristics, such as substances used, age at first use, route of use, frequency of use, and number of previous admissions
