  • New ARRESTS variable added that lists the number of arrests a person had in the 30 days prior to admission for the 2008 and 2009 studies;
  • More detail added to DENTLF (Detailed "Not in Labor Force" Category) and DETCRIM (Detailed Criminal Justice Referral) to improve usability of these variables for all years in the series; and
  • Existing recode tables in codebooks updated to display the original frequency percentages of categorical variables.

TEDS-D is an administrative data system that provides descriptive information about discharges from alcohol or drug treatment in facilities that report to individual state administrative data systems. Demographic information such as gender, race, ethnicity, education, and employment status, among others, are included in the data. The reason for discharge and the length of time in treatment are also included in the file. 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.

SAMHDA also maintains and distributes a TEDS-D concatenated file, which will be updated to include the 2009 data.

The 2009 TEDS-D report is available from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
