The Tennessee Drug Rehab state page provides the reader with a quick overview of issues relating to drug and alcohol addiction and TN drug rehab centers.
It should be noted that these pages are not intended as an academic reference. The data collected is from State and Federal sources.
In 2010, there were 11,717 people admitted to drug and . Of those admitted to addiction treatment, 67.0 % were male and 33.0% were female.
According to the 2006 National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N SSATS), there were 195 drug and alcohol facilitites in Tennessee. Of these facilities, 147 (75%) were private nonprofit, and 35 (18%) were private for-profit.
Drug-only admissions have increased, from 18% of all admissions in 1992, to 41% in 2006. Concomitantly, admissions for both drugs and alcohol have decreased, from 45% in 1992 to 28% in 2006.
In 2007-2008, Tennessee ranked first among all states for past-year non-medical use of pain relievers among persons age 26 or older. Tennessee also was one of the top ten states for rates in other drug-use categories, including past-month use of illicit drugs other than marijuana among persons age 12 and older.
Approximately 8% of Tennessee residents reported past-month use of illicit drugs; the national average was 8%.
Tennessee has also ranked among the 10 states with the highest rate of past year nonmedical use of pain relievers in 2007.
In 2010, there were 4,064 people admitted to treatment for alcohol as their primary drug and 4,931 people admitted with alcohol addiction with a secondary substance.
Tennessee’s rates for alcohol dependence in the past year have consistently been among the 10 lowest in the country for all age groups and across all survey years.
Drug abuse is a national epidemic and the numbers are continuing to rise. Heroin is becoming the cheaper replacement for opiates as states continue to crack down on the “pill mills” making the cost of opiates too expensive.
The drug-induced death rate in Tennessee is higher than the national average.
As a direct consequence of drug use, 1,035 persons died in Tennessee in 2007. This is compared to the number of persons in Tennessee who died from motor vehicle accidents (1,303) and firearms (924) in the same year. Tennessee drug-induced deaths exceeded the national rate.
