The National Registry of Alcohol Treatment (NAB) contains data on individuals who are currently or have been assigned for treatment of alcoholism. NAB contains data captured on clients admitted to treatment for alcoholism so the register provides statistics on admissions.
NAB has gathered data since 1 January 2006. The centres to which the country's municipalities refer clients are required to report to the Statens Serum Institutee and this applies to public as well as private institutions for treating alcoholism. Data also comes from privately funded treatment for alcoholism although this is notified on a voluntary basis.
- Scientific Research
- The population consists of individuals receiving treatment for alcoholism from their municipality, i.e. individuals in state-funded treatment for alcoholism. The register also includes individuals in privately funded treatment for alcoholism. The latter are only reported voluntarily so there is no certainty that the register includes all patients in privately funded treatment
