Comparable to National Dataset?

TEDS is national data. State-level data is not necessarily directly comparable to other states in dataset. 

Data Owners

Georgia Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities

Strategic Data Need

Assess need for substance abuse treatment. 


TEDS accepts data revisions for admissions occurring in the previous 5 years to improve data quality (but admissions numbers reported may differ slightly from those in earlier/subsequent data) 


Does not represent total national demand for substance abuse treatment; differences in state systems of licensure, certification, accreditation, and disbursement of public funds affect scope of facilities included in dataset; may not include private for-profit agencies, hospitals, and state correctional system if not licensed through the state; does not include federal agency-operated facilities. Treatment admissions (TEDS-A) represent admissions rather than individuals, as a person may be admitted more than once.
