The 2011 Data Co-ordination Overview reports on treated substance misuse in the South East region, which cover the counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford.

The report contains data collected and collated from statutory, voluntary and community services in the South East. The report also contains data collated for other problems including gambling and concerned persons. Concerned persons are people concerned about another’s substance misuse problem.

The data contained in the report is based upon the analysis of a number of different data systems. These are as follows:-
 National Drug Treatment Reporting System (NDTRS)
 Hospital In-patient Enquiry System (HIPE Scheme)
 National Psychiatric In-patient Reporting System (NPIRS)
 An Garda Siochána Data System

The Report is broken down into nine sections. Sections 2 through 6 present an overview of data using the different data systems mentioned above, firstly on a Regional Level, then by a County basis, with the exception of the NPIRS, which gives a Regional Overview only.
