On September 9, 2016, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) released the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), detailing the state of substance use and mental disorders in the nation.
This national report summarizes key findings for indicators of substance use and mental health among people aged 12 years old or older in the civilian, non-institutionalized population of the United States. Results are provided for the overall category of individuals aged 12 or older as well as by age subgroups. Trends continue to be presented for estimates that are assumed to have remained comparable with those in earlier years (e.g., marijuana and heroin use trends for 2002 to 2015 and mental health trends typically for 2008 to 2015).
