My goal for this project was to predict the drug and alcohol treatment score* of an area by looking at the gun violence within that area.
* This treatment score will be discussed soon.

The TEDS system is comprised of two major components, the Admissions Data Set and the Discharges Data Set. TEDS-D (consisting of discharge records), includes the same variables as the admissions (TEDS-A) component, with the addition of:
type of service at discharge; reason for discharge or discontinuation of service.
