Substance Use Participants Served Per 1,000

All county departments of human services (Wis. Stat. § 46.23) and community programs (Wis. Stat. § 51.42) are required to report data to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services describing individuals with mental health and substance use service needs and the services they provide them. Data collection is required describing all service participants whose care is the legal responsibility of county service agencies, regardless of the funding source for their services or whether services are provided by county agencies directly or through a contracted private service agency. Individuals who are not served under the county agency are not included in this data brief.

County agencies have different levels of resources to serve the residents in their county and may have different levels of local funding support. The number of participants served per capita can serve as a standardized indicator to compare how many residents each county is able to serve in a year with its available resources.

The number of participants served by a county agency includes new enrollees, ongoing participants enrolled in prior years, and participants who disenrolled within a year. The per capita rate in the table represents the number of participants served at any time during the year per 1,000 county residents, using numbers from the 2010 U.S. Census.

The annual per capita rates for 2014, 2015, and 2016 are displayed in the table and the average per capita rate for the 2014-2016 period is displayed in the map.
