New National Report Focuses on Behavioral Health, Including Opioid Misuse

Today, SAMHSA released the latest findings from the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), which provides the estimates on substance use and mental health in the United States, including the misuse of opioids. In 2016, there were 11.8 million people ages 12 or older who misused opioids in the past year. The majority of those individuals misused pain relievers rather than used heroin; 11.5 million people misused pain relievers and 948,000 were heroin users. Additionally, the prevalence of serious mental illness, depression, and suicidal thoughts has increased among young adults over recent years. The report also includes data about opioid use disorder, substance use treatment, marijuana use, and mental illness. The complete findings of the report are available online. SAMHSA will be releasing additional 2016 NSDUH reports on adult substance use treatment and mental health services on September 21 and substance use initiation and risk perceptions on September 28.

Details of the NSDUH findings will be shared during a press conference on Thursday, September 7. Members of the public are invited to join the live webcast of the event beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern time.
