The NSDUH Report – Alcohol Treatment: Need, Utilization, & Barriers, a 3 page OAS short report based on data from SAMHSA’s National Survey on Drug Use & Health (NSDUH) that examines the demographics of persons in the general population aged 12 or older who met criteria for needing alcohol treatment and for those who actual received alcohol treatment. Many people who need treatment do not feel that need and therefore do not seek treatment. Because the barriers for those who both need alcohol treatment and feel that need are presented in this report, treatment health professionals can better target strategies to deal with these unmet alcohol treatment needs.
