The U.S Census Bureau shows Hawaii’s population for 2008 to be 1,288,198; a small amount compared to several other states. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health’s (NSDUH) yearly survey for 2005-2006, the drug abuse and alcohol dependency rates for Hawaii have been constantly ranked among those states with the lowest rates. However, the rates for the prior year and month for marijuana use is the same or higher than the national rates for all ages. Contrarily, the rates of past month illegal drug use besides marijuana has stayed at or went below the national rates. This is also the case with alcohol use.

The alcohol abuse or dependency rate for Hawaii has been changeable, with all ages staying at or going below the national rate in 2005-2006, ranking individuals age 12 to 17 among the nation’s lowest. This applies to drug use as well, with the exception of those 26 and older.

Still, help is needed in Hawaii for drug addiction and alcohol dependency. This assistance is provided by several treatment facilities. As of 2006, Hawaii had 94 private nonprofit facilities and 12 private for-profit treatment centers while the federal, state, and local government owned or ran the remaining amount.

There are a host of treatment programs available at these facilities, with most patients being in outpatient care. Outpatient treatment allows the patient to be under the supervision of a sober individual outside the treatment center. For example, depending on the severity of his symptoms, a patient suffering from xanax addiction can receive outpatient care provided he checks in with the facility regularly.

A 2006 survey by the NSDUH shows that in Hawaii, 97 facilities offered outpatient treatment; 17 offered residential care; and 3 offered an opioid treatment program. Additionally, 37 physicians and 7 programs were authorized to provide bupenorphine treatment. Furthermore, the federal and local government funded 91 treatment facilities while 43 centers were contracted (or had agreements) with managed care establishments.

Hawaii had a one-day total of 3,787 patients in treatment, with 3,284 of them being in outpatient care; 864 of them were under 18 years old. The past 15 years has shown a consistent decrease in treatment admission for alcohol and cocaine addiction, and a significant increase in treatment admissions for methamphetamine. While alcohol-only admissions have decreased from over 24 percent 1992 to 14 percent in 2006, drug-only admissions increased from 18 percent in 1992 to 37 percent in 2005.

The 2005–2006 statistics for Hawaii regarding those needing specialized treatment but not seeking it in the past year show individuals age 12 to 17 and 18 to 25 to be among the lowest in the country. In opposition, the rate for individuals 26 and older was among the 10 highest in the country.

There is good news on the psychological spectrum. The rates for past year serious psychological distress (SPD) and major depressive episodes (MDE) have stayed among the 10 lowest in the country, except for individuals below 18 years of age. Obviously, special attention needs to be placed on the youths.
