a. Received alcohol treatment at a specialty facility refers to treatment received at a hospital (inpatient), a rehabilitation facility (inpatient or outpatient), or mental health center in order to reduce or stop alcohol use, or for medical problems associated with alcohol use. Respondents were classified as needing treatment for an alcohol problem if they met at least one of three criteria during the past year: (1) were dependent on alcohol; (2) abused alcohol; or (3) received treatment for alcohol use at a specialty facility.

b. Specification of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan subgroups changed in 2009; results should not be compared with those of previous years. For information on the urban-rural classification scheme, refer to http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data_access/urban_rural.htm#documentation.
