Treatment demand and treatment demand indicator (TDI) hub


Information on the number of people entering treatment for a drug problem provides insight into general trends in problem drug use and also offers a perspective on the organisation and uptake of treatment facilities. ‘Treatment demand data’ come from each country with varying degrees of national coverage, principally from outpatient and inpatient centres’ treatment records. The EMCDDA's Treatment Demand Indicator (TDI) is one of the key epidemiological indicators which contribute to the overall EMCDDA aim of providing objective, reliable and comparable information at a European level concerning drugs, drug addiction and their consequences.
