Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

For almost four decades, soyabeans has encompassed most of Mississipi’s acreage while cotton has been responsible for the state’s largest crop revenue, signifying that agriculture has been an important part of Mississippi’s economy. On a more personal level, the issue of drug abuse has always been a problem in the United States. In examining Mississippi’s overall drug and alcohol use, a 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) reporting has ranked Mississippi among the 10 states with the lowest rates based on the measures depicted in the chart above.

In a 2006 survey conducted by the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS), there were 112 treatment facilities in Mississippi; 112 were private nonprofit; less than 10 percent were private for-profit; the rest were owned or ran by the federal, state, or local government.

Whether the individual is suffering from alcohol or drug addiction, outpatient care is most often administered. In Mississippi (in 2006), there were 82 facilities that offered outpatient treatment, 39 offered residential treatment, 1 offered opioid maintenance, and 69 physicians and 6treatment programs offered buprenorphine as treatment for opiate addiction. The 2006 NSSATS survey also shows that Mississippi had a one-day census of 4,035 clients being in outpatient treatment, and 282 of them being below 18 years old.

In Mississippi, since the last 12 years have passed, there has been a consistent decrease in the amount of treatment admissions for alcohol dependency, and an increase in the amount of treatment admissions for opiates abuse, such as oxycontin abuse, with heroin being the exception. Statistics for alcohol-only admissions have shown a decrease from 29 percent in 1995 to 16 percent in 2005. However, drug-only admissions escalated from 18 percent in 1995 to 37 percent in 2006.

Many individuals who needed drug-only treatment received it in the year prior, ranking Mississippi below the national rates for “unmet need for drug treatment” (except for individuals age 26 and older). The rates for individuals needing alcohol-only treatment but did not receive it in the year prior, have steadily been among the lowest in the country for all age groups.

Individuals requiring both drug and alcohol treatment should continue seeking them, so the state’s “unmet need for treatment” can keep diminishing. Drug and alcohol use are perilous to one’s health, so if you (or someone you know) have fallen prey to their consequences, remember there is hope.
