Proposed Project: Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) (OMB No. 0930-
0335)--Extension

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) is requesting an extension to collect the Treatment Episode 
Data Set (TEDS) data collection (OMB No. 0930-0335), which expires on 
March 31, 2019. TEDS is a compilation of client-level substance use 
treatment admission and discharge data submitted by states on clients 
treated in facilities that receive state funds. SAMHSA is also 
requesting an extension to collect the client-level mental health 
admission and update/discharge data (MH-TEDS/MH-CLD) submitted by 
states on clients treated in facilities that receive state funds (also 
OMB No. 0930-0335).
    TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD data are collected to obtain information on the 
number of admissions and updates/discharges at publicly funded 
substance use treatment and mental health services facilities and on 
the characteristics of clients receiving services at those facilities.
    TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD also monitor 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 through the TEDS/MH-TEDS/
MH-CLD.
    Most states collect the TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-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/MH-
CLD. No changes are expected in the TEDS/MH-TEDS/MH-CLD data elements 
that are collected.
