Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Among pregnant women aged 15 to 44 years in 2000 and 2001 combined, 12.9 percent used alcohol and 4.6 percent were binge drinkers. These rates were significantly lower than the rates for nonpregnant women of that age (49.8 and 20.5 percent, respectively).
Larger doses of amphetamines may produce fever, sweating, headache, blurred vision, and dizziness.
22.5 million Americans aged 12 or older in 2004 were classified with past year substance dependence or abuse (9.4 percent of the population), about the same number as in 2002 and 2003. Of these, 3.4 million were classified with dependence on or abuse of both alcohol and illegal drugs, 3.9 million were dependent on or abused illegal drugs but not alcohol, and 15.2 million were dependent on or abused alcohol but not illegal drugs.
Among pregnant women aged 15 to 44, an estimated 10.6 percent reported current alcohol use, 4.5 percent reported binge drinking, and 0.8 percent reported heavy drinking. These rates were significantly lower than the rates for nonpregnant women in the same age group (54.0, 24.2, and 5.5 percent, respectively). Binge drinking during the first trimester of pregnancy was reported by 10.3 percent of pregnant women aged 15 to 44. All of these estimates by pregnancy status are based on data averaged over 2007 and 2008. The 2007-2008 estimate for first-trimester binge drinking is higher than in 2005-2006, when it was 4.6 percent.
Because individuals addicted to opiates are likely to reach a point where they are no longer capable of holding down a job, they are also likely to lose any health insurance coverage. The diseases or conditions that develop in someone addicted to opiates as a result of their drug use are often paid for through public funds because the addicts cannot pay for their own treatment.
In 2006, among persons who received their last or current substance use treatment at a specialty facility in the past year, 42.1 percent reported using their "own savings or earnings" as a source of payment for their most recent specialty treatment. In addition, 37.4 percent reported using private health insurance, 26.9 percent reported using Medicaid, 21.4 percent reported using public assistance other than Medicaid, 20.9 percent reported using Medicare, and 16.3 percent reported relying on family members. (Note that persons could report more than one source of payment.)
