Canadian agency releases report on 2011-2012 national treatment indicators

Key findings include:

“The NTI [national treatment indicators] data demonstrate that substance use has serious impacts beyond the individual who has a problem. For example, individuals seeking help for a family member or a close friend’s substance use accounted for over 10% of treatment episodes in 2011 – 2012. This behaviour emphasizes the need for treatment services to develop approaches that include family and loved ones of the clients.”
