New National Study Shows that More Than 1 in 5 Young Adults Need Treatment for Alcohol or Illicit Drug Use
The study also shows that fewer than 1 in 10 young adults needing this treatment receive it. Nearly 7 million Americans between ages 18 and 25 were classified as needing treatment in the past year for alcohol or illicit drug use according to a new national study. The study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration also shows that 93 percent of these young adults did not receive the help they needed at a specialty treatment facility. These levels have remained relatively stable since 2002.
