The potato state, Idaho, has been ranked among the 10 lowest rates for drug addiction and alcohol dependency. The rates for prior year drug dependency for individuals 26 and older have stayed among the lowest in the country; however, the rates for alcohol dependency for individuals age 12 to 17 have steadily ranked among the highest.

The 2006 National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS) survey states that there were currently 57 treatment facilities in Idaho; 21 private nonprofit and 28 private for-profit. There were also 4 centers owned and ran by tribal governments. Before this survey was conducted, Idaho had more treatment centers available. Between 2004 and 2006, the number of drug treatment facilities reduced from 73 to 57. The main reason for this decline is the loss of 9 private not-for-profit centers and four private for-profit facilities.

Most of the available facilities in Idaho offer several types of treatment. In 2006, 50 facilities offered outpatient care, 13 extended residential care, and 18 physicians and 3 treatment programs offered buprenorphine as treatment for opiate addiction.

Solidifying the fact that marijuana is the most commonly used drug, the chart above shows that in Idaho, marijuana has a higher percentage for prior month use than other illicit drug use (other than marijuana) for individuals age 12-17. A child in this age group can benefit from marijuana treatment at a treatment facility, where he can undergo outpatient care and/or receive cognitive-behavioral treatment to help him address and overcome his issues.

The 2006 NSSATS survey shows Idaho’s one-day total for treatment admissions to be 3,824; 3,546 were in outpatient treatment; and 395 were below 18 years old. Based on 2006 data, during the last 14 years, there has been a steady decrease in the amount of treatment admissions for alcohol and cocaine abuse, and a significant increase– 8 percent in 1992 to 53 percent in 2005–of admissions for methamphetamine use.

Idaho’s rate for individuals age 12 to 17 who required drug treatment but did not receive it in the prior year stayed at or above the national rate. However, the rates for alcohol treatment ranked this age group among the highest. Additionally, the rates of prior year serious psychological distress (SPD) have been higher than the national rate, especially for individuals age 18 to 25. The rates of prior year major depressive episodes (MDE) have also stayed greater than the national rates, especially among individuals age 12-17 and 18-25.

Although Idaho’s rates for drug and alcohol use have been ranked among the lowest in the country, it is clear that individuals undergoing related psychological issues need assistance.
