About the Indicator:
The Drug and Alcohol Abuse Normative
Evaluation System admission form contains 21 substances that a person can be
admitted for, as well as an ‘other’ category.
This indicator represents the primary substance of abuse that persons
were admitted for. An asterisk indicates
that the value is between 1 and 5, and is thus suppressed. Persons were excluded if age, race/ethnicity,
gender or residence was unknown.
This indicator represents the percentage of each specific
demographic group admitted to treatment facilities in Minnesota by primary substance of abuse, out of the
overall total of admissions to treatment facilities in Minnesota for that specific demographic
group. For example, the number of males
under age 18 for a specific race admitted to treatment who reported
primary abuse of marijuana were then divided by the total number of
males under age 18 for that specific race, who were admitted to
treatment for that same year.
As of 2007, the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) can be used to compare state and
national rates of persons in treatment by their primary substance of
abuse: alcohol (rate ratio = 1.33:1.00), marijuana (rate ratio =
1.06:1.00), crack/cocaine (rate ratio = 0.73:1.00), methamphetamine
(rate ratio = 1.29:1.00), heroin (rate ratio = 0.26:1.00), and other
opiates (rate ratio = 1.02:1.00). For more national comparisons, click here State Epi Profile.
