Project: Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) (OMB No. 0930–0335)— Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting a revision of the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) data collection (OMB No. 0930–0335), which expires on January 31, 2016. TEDS is a compilation of client-level substance abuse treatment admission and discharge data submitted by states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds. SAMHSA is requesting the addition of client-level mental health admission and update/ discharge data (MH–TEDS/CLD) submitted by states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds. These mental health data have been previously collected in support of the Community Mental Health Services Block Grant (MHBG) and Substance Abuse and Prevention Treatment Block Grant (SABG) Application Guidance and Instructions (OMB No. 0930–0168). TEDS/MH–TEDS/CLD data are collected to obtain information on the number of admissions and updates/ discharges at publicly-funded substance abuse treatment and mental health services facilities and on the characteristics of clients receiving services at those facilities. TEDS/MH– TEDS/CLD also monitors trends in the demographic, substance use, and mental health characteristics of admissions. In addition, several of the data elements used to calculate performance measures for the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) applications are collected in TEDS/MH–TEDS/CLD. This request includes: • Continuation of collection of TEDS (substance abuse) client-level admissions and discharge data; • Continuation of collection of MH– TEDS client-level admissions and update/discharge data of mental health clients beyond the pilot phase; and • Addition of collection of MHCLD client-level admissions and update/ discharge data (transferred from OMB No. 0930–0168). Most states collect the TEDS/MH– TEDS/CLD data elements from their treatment providers for their own administrative purposes and are able to submit a cross-walked extract of their data to TEDS/MH–TEDS/CLD. No changes are expected in the (substance abuse) TEDS collection. No changes are expected in the (mental health) MHCLD collection (other than recording the MH–TEDS/CLD burden hours separately from the Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) application approval instructions (OMB No. 0930–0168) and the addition of MH–TEDS beyond the pilot phase. No data element changes for TEDS/MH–TEDS/CLD are expected.
