The following acronyms are used to abbreviate treatment unit type: OUT = outpatient treatment centres; INP = inpatient treatment centres; LTA = low-threshold agencies; PRIS = treatment units in prison; GP = general practitioners; OTH = other treatment units.

(1) Low-threshold methadone maintenance and crisis counselling.

(2) Since 2004: OUTP AND PRIS data together.

(3) Outpatient centres data covers only new clients.

(4) 2004 OTHER refers to Specialised drug unit of judicial police (SPJ).

(5) 2007 data refers to OUTP AND INP data together.

(6) Outpatient, inpatient treatment centres, low-threshold agencies, units in prison and dual-diagnosis unit of psychiatric hospital together.

(7) OUTP AND LTA data together; 2008: OUT and LTA and INP data together.

(8) In 2006 the DOKLI data collection system was implemented.

(9) For 2008 and 2009 data. Numbers presented in tables in scope of inpatient data are sum of data collected by two separated systems (TDI pilot project and Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology (IPiN) system). There is an overlap between the systems in inpatient data and due to that double counting is not eliminated between systems. Double counting is eliminated independently in each data collection systems (TDI pilot project and IPiN systems).The system provided by Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology covers all psychiatric facilities including wards in hospitals, psychiatric hospitals and inpatient rehabilitation treatment facilities. In the majority of these facilities only few or no drug users were treated. Main data comes from the rehabilitation centres specialised in drug treatment. Caution should be made when interpreting.

(10) Most recent prisons treatment data do not cover new clients.
