Notes:

• "Psychotherapeutics" include the nonmedical use of any prescription-type pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, or sedatives. Over-the-counter substances are not included.
• “Heavy” alcohol use is defined as drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion on each of 5 or more days in the past 30 days.
• Methodology changes make comparison between different survey years problematic.
• The shift to 2010 census data from 2000 could affect comparisons between substance use estimates in 2011 and those from prior years, particularly with respect to some demographic groups.
