a Received any illicit drug 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 drug use, or for medical problems associated with drug use. Respondents were classified as needing treatment for an illicit drug problem if they met at least one of three criteria during the past year: (1) were dependent on any illicit drug; (2) abused any illicit drug; or (3) received treatment for an illicit drug problem at a specialty facility (i.e., drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities (inpatient or outpatient), hospitals (inpatient only), and mental health centers). Illicit drugs include marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), inhalants, hallucinogens, heroin, or prescription-type psychotherapeutic medications (nonmedical use), based on data from original questions not including methamphetamine items added in 2005 and 2006.

b Estimates are based on a revised definition of poverty level that incorporates information on family income, size, and composition and are calculated as a percentage of the U.S. Census Bureau's poverty thresholds. Negative/poor refers to household incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low, the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over. Respondents with unknown poverty information are excluded.

c Specification of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan subgroups changed in 2009; results should not be compared to 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 for details.

DSU - Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability, data quality, or confidentiality.
