Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Among adults aged 18 or older with SPD, the rate of binge alcohol use (drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion on at least 1 day in the past 30 days) was 28.8 percent, higher than the 23.9 percent among adults who did not meet the criteria for SPD. Similarly, the rate of heavy alcohol use (drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion [i.e., at the same time or within a couple of hours of each other] on each of 5 or more days in the past 30 days) among adults with SPD in the past year was higher (9.4 percent) than the rate reported among adults without SPD in the past year (7.2 percent).
Among adults aged 26 or older, 6.1 percent reported current illegal drug use in 2006. In this age group, 4.2 percent used marijuana, and 2.2 percent used prescription-type drugs nonmedically. Less than 1 percent used cocaine (0.8 percent), hallucinogens (0.1 percent), and inhalants (0.2 percent). The only significant change between 2005 and 2006 in the rates of past month use among adults in this age group involved heroin, which increased from 0.03 to 0.14 percent. Lifetime nonmedical use of OxyContin? among adults aged 26 or older increased from 0.9 percent in 2005 to 1.1 percent in 2006, and past year use of stimulants and heroin also increased (stimulants, from 0.6 to 0.9 percent; heroin, from 0.1 to 0.2 percent).
Among adults aged 18 or older, past year prevalence of MDE varied by race/ethnicity in 2008. The rate of MDE was highest among persons reporting two or more races (12.7 percent), while rates for single race groups were 7.0 percent among whites, 5.2 percent among Hispanics, 4.9 percent among American Indians or Alaska Natives, 4.9 percent among blacks, and 3.6 percent among Asians. Estimates of past year MDE among Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders could not be reported due to low precision.
The States with the highest rates of any illegal drug use for all persons aged 12 or older were mostly in the West (six States) and the Northeast (three States). Most of the States that displayed the lowest rates in the Nation were either from the South (five States) or the West (three States). Two Midwestern States, Kansas and Iowa, completed the lowest fifth. Among teens aged 12 to 17, States in the South again predominated the lowest fifth (Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia).
Methamphetamine, like alcohol, is metabolized by the kidneys; chronic long term use of the drug can lead to severe kidney damage.
The rate of binge alcohol use was lowest among Asians (11.8 percent). Rates for other racial/ethnic groups were 19.1 percent for blacks, 22.8 percent for persons reporting two or more races, 23.9 percent for Hispanics, 24.1 percent for whites, 24.1 percent for Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders, and 31.0 percent for American Indians or Alaska Natives.
