2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) Released

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is the primary source of national and state-level estimates on the prevalence, patterns, and consequences of alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use and abuse in the general U.S. civilian non institutionalized population. The survey is also a source of national estimates on mental health measures such as serious mental illness (SMI), other mental illness, depression, and treatment. NSDUH data are collected annually through nationally representative interviews with approximately 70,000 randomly selected individuals aged 12 and older. NSDUH is conducted by the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ, formerly Office of Applied Studies), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

The data and documentation files for the 2010 NSDUH are now available for download, online analysis, and Quick Tables.

The 2010 NSDUH report is available on the CBHSQ website.
