New Reports from SAMHSA’s Office of Applied Studies

A new report providing analyses of substance use and mental health patterns occurring in each state reveals that there are wide variations among the states in problems such as illicit drug use and underage drinking, but that no state was immune from these problems. For example, past-month use of alcohol among persons aged 12 to 20 (underage use of alcohol) ranged from a low of 21.5 percent in Utah to a high of 38.3 percent in Vermont. Yet Utah had the highest level of people age 18 or older reporting serious psychological distress in the past year (14.4 percent), while Hawaii had the lowest level (8.8 percent).
