Illicit drugs include marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or prescription-type psychotherapeutics used nonmedically, including data from original methamphetamine questions but not including new methamphetamine items added in 2005 and 2006.

NOTES: Substance abuse treatment refers to treatment received to reduce or stop alcohol or illicit drug use or for medical problems associated with alcohol or illicit drug use. It includes treatment received at any location, such as a hospital (inpatient), rehabilitation facility (inpatient or outpatient), mental health center, emergency room, private doctor's office, self-help group, or prison/jail.

Respondents could indicate multiple locations of treatment; thus, these response categories are not mutually exclusive.

As an example of how to interpret the estimates in the table, the second cell in the third row shows that, for 2005 through 2011 combined, 21.5 percent of U.S. adolescents aged 12 to 17 who received illicit drug abuse treatment in the past year, received drug abuse treatment at a hospital inpatient facility.
