Core Data Set Documents

All drug treatment agencies must provide a basic level of information to the NDTMS on their activities each month – known as the Core Data Set. The documents below provide technical guidance for managers of treatment services on what core data must be provided, plus guidance for IT managers on how to develop systems to manage this process.
