About the Indicator:
The Drug and Alcohol Abuse Normative
Evaluation System admission form contains 21 substances that a person can be
admitted for, as well as an ‘other’ category.
This indicator represents the primary substance of abuse that persons
were admitted for. An asterisk indicates
that the value is between 1 and 5, and is thus suppressed. Persons were excluded if age, race/ethnicity,
gender or residence was unknown.
This indicator represents the percentage of each specific
demographic group admitted to treatment facilities in Minnesota by primary substance of abuse, out of the
overall total of admissions to treatment facilities in Minnesota for that specific demographic
group. For example, the number of males
under age 18 for a specific race admitted to treatment who reported
primary abuse of marijuana were then divided by the total number of
males under age 18 for that specific race, who were admitted to
treatment for that same year.
In 2011, a higher percentage of people were admitted to Minnesota treatment facilities for alcohol as their primary substance of abuse compared to the national average (50.8% vs. 39.3%). National data are from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Normative Evaluation System (DAANES)
DAANES includes data on all private- and public-pay treatment facility admissions and discharges. Data were obtained by request from the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) of the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
Sponsored by: Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD), Minnesota Department of Human Services
Geographic Level: State, Region, County
Frequency: Data reported annually
Characteristics: Detoxification facilities report using a separate system, and therefore information about detox admissions in Minnesota is not available through the DAANES system. The DAANES intake form incorporates a portion of the Federal Client Data Set. The history form incorporates an expanded version of the alcohol and other drug (AOD) use items from the Client Data Set and an arrest summary. The discharge form includes discharge status, referrals, payment source and charges, inpatient days, and outpatient treatment hours. According to Minnesota Statutes, Section 254B.05, subdivision 1, chemical dependency providers must participate in DAANES to be eligible for payment under the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF). Approximately 35 detoxification facilities also report voluntarily on a separate DAANES system
