cover of The NSDUH Report June 24, 2009: Young Adults' Need for and Receipt of Alcohol and Illicit Drug Use Treatment: 2007

About one fifth of young adults aged 18 to 25 (21.1 percent) were classified as needing treatment for alcohol or illicit drug use; 17.2 percent were in need of alcohol use treatment, 8.4 percent were in need of illicit drug use treatment, and 4.4 percent were in need of both alcohol and illicit drug use treatment. Less than one tenth (7.0 percent) of the young adults who were in need of alcohol or illicit drug use treatment in the past year received it at a specialty facility in the past year. Of the young adults who needed but did not receive alcohol or illicit drug use treatment in a specialty facility in the past year, 96.0 percent did not perceive the need. Less than one third of the young adults who did not receive treatment in a specialty facility but thought they needed it made an attempt to obtain it.
