The WHO/UNODC Substance use disorder treatment facility survey aims to map the treatment of substance use disorders in a country. Measuring the demand for treatment of substance use disorders is vital for monitoring changes in the pattern of drug use in the community and in planning a responsive treatment system. This survey has been developed within the framework of the UNODC-WHO Programme on Drug Dependence Treatment and Care. Data provided as response to this questionnaire can be used for several purposes. The data may be used for mapping of services in a country/region, to develop a register for the general public, for research (in a consolidated form), or as a basis for treatment availability, accessibility, and quality monitoring. The facility survey, together with the International Standards for the Treatment of Drug Use Disorders2, the Treatment Demand Indicator (TDI), and the UNODC Treatment Quality Assurance Tool, form part of a basic suggested package for treatment planning and monitoring
