Another popular method for recreational use of methamphetamine is to insufflate (sometimes called snorting). This is done by crushing the methamphetamine crystals up into a fine powder and then sharply inhaling it (sometimes with a straw or a rolled up bill) into the nose where the meth is absorbed through the soft tissue in the mucous membrane of the sinus cavity straight into the bloodstream.
Between 2008 and 2009, the rate of current use of illicit drugs among young adults aged 18 to 25 increased from 19.6 to 21.2 percent, driven largely by an increase in marijuana use (from 16.5 to 18.1 percent).
In 2009, there were 180,000 persons aged 12 or older who had used heroin for the first time within the past 12 months. The number of heroin initiates was significantly higher than the average annual number of heroin initiates during 2002 to 2008 (slightly over 100,000). Estimates during 2002 to 2008 ranged from 91,000 to 118,000 per year. The average age at first use among recent initiates aged 12 to 49 was 25.5 years in 2009, similar to the average age in 2008.

One of the most common examples of drug and alcohol abuse is driving under the influence (DUI). Many states mandate DUI offenders undergo counseling to combat their drug and alcohol abuse. For low to moderate DUI and DWI offenders, therapy typically involves some form of group counseling program, led either by a substance abuse professional or accomplished through participation in a self-help support organization such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. In most cases, DUI and DWI offenders will be assigned a particular number of hours or weeks during which they must participate in counseling i.e. 30 hours in group sessions or six months in the self-help setting etc.
