Other information: The Drug Abuse Treatment Outcome Studies (DATOS) is NIDA’s third national evaluation of treatment effectiveness. It is based on over 10,000 admissions during 1991-1993 to 96 community-based treatment programs in 11 large U.S. cities. Findings from the three Research Centers (at NDRI, TCU, and UCLA) collaborating with NIDA on this large project are summarized in this web site.
