Hospitalization Rate due to Alcohol Abuse

This indicator shows the age-adjusted hospitalization rate due to Alcohol Abuse per 100,000 population (ICD-9 Codes 303.0,305.0). Data for 2014-2016 uses ICD-10 codes 303.0,305.0,F10.229,F10.10 and so may not be directly comparable to previous time periods. According to SAMHSA €™s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), more than half of all adults drink alcohol, with 6.6% meeting criteria for an alcohol use disorder. Among Americans aged 12 or older, the use of illicit drugs has increased over the last decade from 8.3% of the population using illicit drugs in the past month in 2002 to 9.4% (24.6 million people) in 2013. Of those, 8.2 million people met criteria for a substance use disorder in the past year. The misuse of prescription drugs is second only to marijuana as the nation €™s most common drug problem after alcohol and tobacco, leading to troubling increases in opioid overdoses in the past decade.
