SAMHSA’s Office of Applied Studies (OAS) has just released: 

(1) The NSDUH Report: Smokeless Tobacco Use, Initiation, and Relationship to Cigarette Smoking: 2002 to 2007, a 3 page short report based on data from SAMHSA’s National Survey on Drug Use & Health (NSDUH) that provides trends from 2002 to 2007 of smokeless tobacco use by age and gender as well as the demographics for smokeless tobacco use in 2007. Interesting findings concern the relationship between cigarette and smokeless tobacco use. AT: http://oas.samhsa.gov/2k9/smokelessTobacco/smokelessTobacco.cfm

OAS reports on the use of other tobacco products may be found at: http://oas.samhsa.gov/tobacco.htm

(2) The TEDS Report: Predictors of Substance Abuse Treatment Completion or Transfer to Further Treatment by Service Type, a 3 page short report based on data provided by the States for their specialty substance abuse treatment facilities. This report provides the significant predictors of treatment completion or transfer for clients who were discharged from outpatient, intensive outpatient, long-term residential or short-term residential substance abuse treatment. This information may contribute to the understanding of what leads to successful substance abuse treatment and helpful for those wanting to improve treatment success by targeting programs for clients at risk for relapse or dropout from substance abuse.
