summarizes the types of services offered in treatment facilities during the course of their most recent 12-month reporting period. It should be noted that ADSS determined only if the services were offered at the facility during the twelve-month reporting period. The data do not indicate how frequently the services were available and whether they were available to all clients, targeted subpopulations, or on an ad hoc basis. Well over 90 percent of facilities offered comprehensive assessment and diagnosis, individual therapy, and group therapy. More than 75 percent provided family counseling, HIV/AIDS counseling, relapse prevention, and aftercare (after the cessation of routine treatment) services. Far fewer facilities were likely to offer services of a nonmedical nature. Employment counseling/training was offered in 41 percent of facilities; academic education/GED classes in 17 percent; and child care in 13 percent.
