What is DATAR

Drug and Alcohol Treatment Access Report (DATAR) is the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs’ (ADP) system to collect data on Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment capacity and waiting lists.

DATAR provides essential information about the capacity of California’s publicly-funded AOD treatment system to meet the demand for services. In the past, DATAR information has supported requests for increased government funding. When the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act (Proposition 36) was implemented in July 2001, DATAR became ready to monitor the expected increases in public AOD treatment capacity and demand.

Treatment providers that receive state or federal funding through the county as well all licensed Narcotic Treatment programs must send DATAR information to ADP each month. This has information on the program’s capacity to provide different types of AOD treatment to clients and how much of the capacity was utilized that month. If the provider has a waiting list for publicly-funded AOD treatment services, DATAR includes summary information about the people on the waiting list.
