RECAP: Common Data Collection on Addictions and Treatments
This system was set up in 2005 and continually collects information about clients seen in National Treatment and Prevention Centres for Addiction (CSAPAs). In the month of April, each centre sends its results from the prior year to the OFDT, which analyses these results. The data collected relate to patients, their current treatment and treatments taken elsewhere, their uses (substances used and substance for which they came in the first place) and their health. The common core questions help harmonise the data collection on a national level and fulfil the requirements of the European Treatment Demand Indicator (TDI) protocol.
In 2011, approximately 96,000 patients seen in 160 outpatient CSAPAs (75%), 18 residential treatment centres (nearly 50%) and 11 prison based CSAPAs (69%) were included in the survey.
