Marijuana is another leading cause of admission to treatment facilities, jumping from 13 percent to 18 percent of admissions between 1999 and 2009. The majority of these cases, 74 percent, involved men, and nearly half of these patients were white. The drug was also a reason for 86 percent of admissions involving teens aged 12 to 17 years, according to the report.

As abuse of alcohol, marijuana and opiates rose over the decade, rehab admissions for cocaine use fell from 14 percent to 9 percent. Methamphetamine and amphetamine admissions rose from 4 percent to 9 percent between 1999 and 2005, but then settled at 6 percent by 2009.

"As health care reform continues to improve the delivery of health services in our country, this type of information will increasingly be used to inform the needs of an integrated system of care," Hyde stated in the SAMHSA news release.
