In 2005, over half (52 percent) of substance abuse treatment admissions aged 25 to 44 had never married, 28 percent were formerly married, and 20 percent were currently married. By contrast, in the Nation as a whole, data from the 2000 Census for this age range show 25 percent had never married, 14 percent were formerly married, and 61 percent were currently married. Admissions who had never married were more likely than those who were formerly or currently married to report daily use of the primary substance (44 percent vs. 39 and 36 percent). Substance abuse treatment admissions who had never married were more likely to have extensive treatment histories and less likely to be entering treatment for the first time than other admissions aged 25 to 44 in 2005.
