ABOUT THIS DATASET

People aged 12 and older who received treatment for substance use in the past year.

Substance use treatment refers to treatment received in order to reduce or stop illicit drug or alcohol use, or for medical problems associated with illicit drug or alcohol use. It includes treatment received at any location, such as a hospital (inpatient), rehabilitation facility (inpatient or outpatient), mental health center, emergency room, private doctor's office, self-help group, or prison/jail.

 Estimates include persons who received treatment specifically for illicit drugs or alcohol, as well as persons who received treatment for unspecified substance(s); therefore, the substance-specific estimates may not sum to this combined row.
