Interesting Facts and Statistics:
The top fifth for average annual incidence of marijuana for persons aged 12 or older was comprised mostly of States from the West (five) and from the Northeast (four). Seven States ranked in the top fifth for marijuana incidence in the 12 or older age group also ranked in the top fifth for past month marijuana use (Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont). Because most initiation of marijuana takes place at age 25 or earlier (Gfroerer, Wu, & Penne, 2002), the rates of initiation in the 26 or older age group were much lower than those in the 12 to 17 and 18 to 25 age groups: 0.1, 6.6, and 6.8, respectively. Vermont had the highest rate among teens aged 12 to 17 (10.4), while New Hampshire had the highest rate among persons aged 18 to 25 (11.1) (Table B.5). In the 12 or older age group, seven States from the South were ranked in the lowest fifth for incidence of marijuana.
In 2005, an estimated 2.9 million persons aged 12 or older used an illegal drug for the first time within the past 12 months; this averages to nearly 8,000 initiates per day. This estimate was not significantly different from the number in 2004 (2.8 million). Most initiates (56.1 percent) were younger than age 18 when they first used, and the majority of new users (56.2 percent) were female. The average age at initiation among persons aged 12 to 49 was 18.7 years.
Without the professional recovery treatment, the future of those who are woefully addicted to drugs or alcohol does not look very promising. If they continue their self-destructive substance abuse, their bodies will deteriorate, their minds will become damaged, and their spirits will eventually be crushed.
Crystal methamphetamine is a drug with immense potential for abuse and it is sometimes known on the street as "speed", or "crank".
Among boys aged 18 to 22 in 2008, full-time college students and those not enrolled full time in college did not differ significantly in their rates of past month cigar smoking (18.0 and 18.5 percent, respectively). However, cigar use by boys in this age range who were not enrolled full time in college declined from 2007 (21.7 percent) to 2008 (18.5 percent).
A quality drug rehab treatment program should address the unique needs of each individual. There are varying degrees of drug and alcohol addiction. Some individuals may have a history of failing at numerous attempts to end their addiction patterns. For those individuals who fall into this category, inpatient residential treatment may prove to be invaluable.
