Cigarette Use Fact Sheet
We have two new two-page fact sheets on cigarette use in Minnesota. The first sheet explores the associations between youth cigarette use and mental health, using data from the 2013 Minnesota Student Survey. The second sheet examines e-cigarette use by adults, which is on the rise in Minnesota and nationally. Find these on the Publications page, under Tobacco.
Narcotics and Liquor Law Arrests
We’ve updated data on substance use arrests from Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension’s 2016 Uniform Crime Report. Data cover liquor law arrests and narcotics arrests (with arrests by county or region for classes of drugs, such as marijuana and opioids, and by gender and race for total narcotics arrests). Find Alcohol or Drugs under Data by Topic, and then choose the Consequences tab.
Data from the 2015 Wilder Foundation Homeless Study
Participants in the statewide homeless study were asked about dual diagnosis status—having both mental health and chemical dependency diagnoses. Data can be found under the Adult Mental Health tab. Additional information on the study can be found at http://mnhomeless.org/
Treatment Admissions in Minnesota
We’ve also updated the site with the most recent data from Minnesota’s Drug and Alcohol Normative Evaluation System (DAANES) database. DAANES records the proportions of alcohol and drug treatment admissions for in- and outpatient facilities in the state. For the first time, treatment admissions for drugs (primarily methamphetamines and opioids) surpassed those for alcohol. Check out the stats under the Treatment tabs under either Alcohol or Drugs. Watch for upcoming fact sheets highlighting DAANES data and what it means for treatment in Minnesota.
Check out the short report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration on estimates of young adults’ suicidal thoughts. Find the report on the Publications page, under Mental Health and Co-Occurring Substance Use.
