Interesting Facts and Statistics:

GHB has gained popularity in recent years as a "club drug" among young people; they are reported to use it mainly for its euphoric and sedative effects.

Of the 20.8 million people in 2007 who were classified as needing substance use treatment but did not receive treatment at a specialty facility in the past year, 1.3 million persons (6.4 percent) reported that they felt they needed treatment for their illegal drug or alcohol use problem. Of these 1.3 million persons who felt they needed treatment, 380,000 (28.5 percent) reported that they made an effort to get treatment, and 955,000 (71.5 percent) reported making no effort to get treatment.

Alcoholism and drug addiction are both treatable. Through drug rehab treatment that is tailored to individual needs, an individual can learn to control their condition and live normal, productive lives.

Among people who needed but did not receive illegal drug use treatment and felt they needed treatment (based on 2004-2006 combined data), the six most often reported reasons for not receiving treatment were (1) no health coverage and could not afford cost (35.1 percent), (2) not ready to stop using (31.8 percent), (3) not knowing where to go for treatment (14.7 percent), (4) concern that getting treatment might cause neighbors/community to have negative opinion (13.5 percent), (5) possible negative effect on job (12.8 percent), and (6) being able to handle the problem without treatment (12.4 percent).

Among the 5.4 million adults with both SPD and substance dependence or abuse (i.e., a substance use disorder) in 2007, nearly half (46.5 percent) received mental health care or substance use treatment at a specialty facility; 10.4 percent received both mental health care and specialty substance use treatment, 33.3 percent received only mental health care, and 2.8 percent received only specialty substance use treatment.

75% of the individuals that were arrested during 2009 in relation to domestic violence were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
