Drug Statistics and Facts
Most body systems are affected by alcohol. Side effects include dilation of blood vessels and increased gastric secretion. Chronic alcohol consumption causes damage to body organs such as the brain, liver, heart, stomach, pancreas, and intestines.
Treatment need is defined as having a substance use disorder or receiving treatment at a specialty facility (hospital inpatient, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, or mental health centers) within the past 12 months. In 2008, 23.1 million persons aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem (9.2 percent of persons aged 12 or older). Of these, 2.3 million (0.9 percent of persons aged 12 or older and 9.9 percent of those who needed treatment) received treatment at a specialty facility. Thus, 20.8 million persons (8.3 percent of the population aged 12 or older) needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem but did not receive treatment at a specialty substance abuse facility in the past year.
The estimated number and percentage of persons aged 12 or older who used cocaine in the past month in 2009 (1.6 million users or 0.7 percent) were similar to those in 2008 (1.9 million or 0.7 percent), but lower than the estimates in 2006 (2.4 million or 1.0 percent).
Decreases in the rate of current use of a substance often occur when there are increases in the level of perceived risk of using that substance. Looking over the 7-year period, the proportion of youths aged 12 to 17 who reported perceiving great risk from smoking one or more packs of cigarettes per day increased from 63.1 percent in 2002 to 69.7 percent in 2008. During the same period, the rate of past month cigarette smoking among youths aged 12 to 17 dropped from 13.0 to 9.1 percent.

Among the items seized during the arrests were a total of 108 grams of cocaine, a Yamaha motorcycle stolen from Wilmington, Vermont and two mountain bikes stolen from Brattleboro, Vermont. Sandra L.

Her arrest led to the apprehension of three others at a camping site in town. Bruce A. Puchel, 29, of Meriden, Vermont was charged with three counts of grand larceny, selling and dispensing cocaine, possession of stolen property, aiding in the commission of a felony, possession of fireworks, unlawful mischief and giving false reports to law enforcement, Murano said.
