Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

The state of Maine has produced 98 percent of the United States’ low-bush blueberries. Much of its income is also dependent on the production of diary products, vegetables, and apples, making Maine a very resourceful state. However, using the measures depicted in the chart above, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health Since states that Maine has ranked among the 10 States with the highest rates of drug use and drug abuse. For individuals age 12 and older, Maine’s rates of alcohol abuse and dependence have stayed close to the national rates.

In an effort to combat Maine’s high drug dependency rates, Maine has seen an increase in its number of treatment facilities. The yearly National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS) states that there has been an increase of 177 facilities in 2002 to 191 in 2006. The number of private for-profit centers escalated from 65 in 2002 to 90 in 2006, comprising nearly half of all treatment centers. In 2006, 169 of Maine’s treatment facilities offered outpatient treatment, 27 offered residential care, 7 offered opioid treatment for xanax addiction and other opiate addictions. There were also 71 physicians authorized to provide buprenorphine treatment.

The 2006 NSSATS survey conducted on March 31, 2006 reflects that Maine had a one-day treatment admissions total 7,833 clients; 874 were below 18 years of age. Most of these clients were receiving outpatient treatment. Since 2002, Maine has seen a consistent elevation in its yearly treatment admissions, shifting from 9,125 in 2002 to 13,683 in 2005. During the last 14 years, there has been a steady decrease in the amount of alcohol treatment admissions and changeable increases in marijuana, cocaine, and heroin admissions.

Many individuals in Maine who needed treatment for drugs did not receive in the year prior, consequently ranking Maine above the national average for “unmet need for treatment”. Contrarily, individuals needing and not receiving treatment for alcohol use have stayed at or below the national average, except for individuals age 12 to 17.

For individuals suffering from psychological problems, the rates for serious psychological distress (SPD) and major depressive episodes (MDE) have been at or above the national average. Maine’s statistics reflects an increasing percentage of treatment admissions for individuals with psychological problems.

Drug addiction alcohol dependency are not only crippling on the body, but on the mind as well. Help is available in abundance (free and paid) for individuals with a genuine desire to prevail against the horrific consequences of substance abuse.
