NOTE: Respondents were classified as needing treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol problem if they met at least one of three criteria during the past year: (1) dependent on illicit drugs or alcohol; (2) abuse of illicit drugs or alcohol; or (3) received treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol problem at a specialty facility (i.e., drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities [inpatient or outpatient], hospitals [inpatient only], and mental health centers). Illicit Drugs include marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or prescription-type psychotherapeutics used nonmedically.
NOTE: Estimates shown on this table correspond to Healthy People 2010 Objective Numbers 26-18 and 26-21 (http://www.healthypeople.gov/ ).
a Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.
b Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.01 level.
1 Estimates include persons who received treatment specifically for illicit drugs or alcohol, as well as persons who received treatment but did not specify for what substance(s).
2 These racial categories do not distinguish among ethnic origin (i.e., Hispanic or Latino origin), so they include respondents who are either Hispanic or not Hispanic.
3 Estimates are based on a revised definition of Poverty Level that incorporates information on family income, size, and composition and is calculated as a percentage of the U.S. Census Bureau's poverty thresholds. These estimates are not comparable with similar estimates published in prior NSDUH reports. See Appendix C of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings for details on the variable.

*Low precision; no estimate reported.
NOTE: The 2005 estimates may differ from and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. In 2006, estimates on the source of methamphetamine are based on responses to questions from respondents who reported methamphetamine use in the core Stimulants module and from respondents who reported methamphetamine use in the noncore Special Drugs module and initially did not report methamphetamine use in the core module because they did not consider it to be a prescription drug. For 2005, a Bernoulli stochastic imputation procedure was used to generate adjusted estimates comparable with the 2006 estimates. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.
NOTE: Estimates for Source for Most Recent Nonmedical Use include (a) past month users who reported a single source of obtainment during the past 30 days, (b) past month users who identified their last source of obtainment after reporting multiple sources of obtainment in the past 30 days, and (c) all other past year users who reported their last source of obtainment in the past year.
a Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.
b Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.01 level.
