A service event refers to admission to a specific treatment service with an associated discharge or case closure. One person might access several services over the course of a year. For example, transferring from one program or service to another (e.g., withdrawal management to non-residential treatment) will comprise two service events. A non-residential service event may include multiple appointments.

Non-residential treatment (NRT) refers to outpatient services as well as services offered by facilities such as halfway houses, youth shelters, mental health facilities or correctional facilities where the primary purpose of residence is not substance use service provision.
Residential treatment (RT) refers to programs in which overnight accommodation is provided for the purpose of substance use or gambling treatment. This does not include programs delivered in settings such as youth shelters, homeless shelters, prison facilities or mental health facilities where the primary purpose of residence is to address needs such as mental health, housing or public safety.
Withdrawal management refers to the initial supervised, controlled period of withdrawing from substances. Residential withdrawal management (RWM) includes programs where clients spend nights at a withdrawal management facility, treatment facility or hospital. Nonresidential withdrawal management (NRWM) includes daytox and home or community detox.
