The 2012 Data Co-ordination Overview of Drug Misuse reports on treated substance misuse in the South East region. The South East region covers 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.

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)

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

The HIPE and NPIRS report on 2011 data in order to ensure a complete data set.

Since 2007, the Garda Siochána section of the report is taken from Garda Recorded Crime Statistics, published by the Central Statistics Office.
