NOPRIOR: NUMBER OF PRIOR TREATMENT EPISODES

Indicates the number of previous treatment episodes the
client has received in any drug or alcohol program. Changes 
in service for the same episode (transfers) should not be 
counted as separate prior episodes.

Guidelines: It is preferred that the number of prior 
treatments be a self-reported field collected at the 
time of client intake. However, this data item may be 
derived from the State data system, if the system has 
that capability, and episodes can be counted for at 
least several years.
