Oregon Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers and Programs

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a study that measures the use and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs amongst the citizens of the United States. Each state is surveyed and the results posted publically. The organization surveys different age groups, including those 12 and older, 12 to 17 to 18 to 25 and those older than 26. The NSDUH found that in Oregon, two groups, those 12 and older and those over 26, measure rather high for the abuse of alcohol and other substances. In fact, they hold the distinction of having some of the highest rates of use in the country.

However, before one thinks that all is lost in Oregon, it is important to note that other groups fare pretty well and rank among the 10 states with the lowest rates of use for past month illicit drugs for those 12 and older and 26 and older, for past year marijuana use, and past month marijuana use. As it stands, rates of abuse are pretty variable with some very good measurements and some that are not so good.

Individuals who enter Oregon drug and alcohol rehab facilities do so largely for alcohol abuse, cocaine, marijuana and heroin. Alcohol addiction is the reason most people enter rehab in Oregon, though the percentage of people that are entering treatment solely for this addiction is declining. Marijuana is the second most common reason and that has held steady for the past 10 years. Fewer people are coming in for alcohol and cocaine addiction and there has been a decline in those coming in for heroin. As it stands, in regards to admission, the only group that is increasing is those that are coming in for help for marijuana. Alcoholism continues to be the primary cause for admission in Oregon alcohol rehab centers, though these numbers a declining pretty rapidly.

A study by the N-SSATS found that in one day there were 22,353 people in various alcohol and/or drug rehabilitations centers. Ten percent of those individuals were under the age of 18. In 2006, there were over 200 substance abuse facilities in Oregon. A little over half of them were nonprofit and private. Nine were owned by tribal governments. Two hundred offered outpatient treatment. These trends tend to be pretty universal throughout the United States.

Most alcohol and drug use measures in Oregon remain at national averages. However, there are places were they rank below the national averages ( past month illicit drug use for those 12+ and 26+ and past year marijuana use for those 12+ and 26+) and places where they rank higher then the national averages (abuse of alcohol and other substance amongst those 12 and 26+), resulting in some variability as it concerns drug and alcohol use and dependence in Oregon.
