Interesting Facts and Statistics:
In 2008, an estimated 12.4 percent of persons aged 12 or older drove under the influence of alcohol at least once in the past year. This percentage has dropped since 2002, when it was 14.2 percent. The rate of driving under the influence of alcohol was highest among persons aged 21 to 25 (26.1 percent).
Heroin was actually the active ingredient in a number of different products, including cough suppressants and morphine addiction curatives in the early part of the 20th century.
Much of the heroin used in the United States comes from poppies grown in Colombia and Mexico.
In 2008, during their most recent treatment in the past year, 2.7 million persons aged 12 or older reported receiving treatment for alcohol use, and 947,000 persons reported receiving treatment for marijuana use. Accordingly, estimates on receiving treatment for the use of other drugs were 663,000 persons for cocaine, 601,000 for pain relievers, 341,000 for heroin, 336,000 for stimulants, 326,000 for tranquilizers, and 287,000 for hallucinogens. None of these estimates changed significantly between 2007 and 2008. Also, none of these estimates changed significantly between 2002 and 2008, except that the numbers who received treatment for the use of pain relievers and tranquilizers in 2008 were higher than the numbers in 2002 (360,000 and 197,000 persons, respectively). (Note that respondents could indicate that they received treatment for more than one substance during their most recent treatment.)
The rate of current illegal drug use in metropolitan areas was higher than the rate in nonmetropolitan areas in 2005. The rates were 8.4 percent in large metropolitan counties, 8.4 percent in small metropolitan counties, and 6.9 percent in nonmetropolitan counties as a group. Within nonmetropolitan areas, counties that were urbanized had a rate of 7.8 percent, less urbanized counties had a rate of 6.5 percent, while completely rural counties had a rate of 5.1 percent.
Almost all addicted individuals believe they can stop using drugs or alcohol on their own in the beginning and most eventually will try to stop without professional help. However, most of these attempts generally will result in failure in terms of achieving long-term abstinence.
