Other Key Findings from the NSDUH Survey
According to the new survey, the overall use of illicit drugs among Americans aged 12 and older remained stable since the last survey in 2011. The NSDUH report shows that 23.9 million Americans aged 12 or older were current (past month) illicit drug users – (9.2 percent of the population 12 and older).

Marijuana continues to be the most commonly used illicit drug. In 2012, 7.3 percent of Americans were current users of marijuana – up from 5.8 percent in 2007.

In addition to marijuana, the use of heroin also rose significantly. The number of people aged 12 and older who used heroin in the past year rose from 373,000 in 2007 to 669,000 in 2012.

"We are quite troubled by the data showing an increase in heroin use.  As a recent study from the CDC showed, most new heroin users have a history of abusing opioid pain relievers," said Steve Pasierb.  "As people progress in their addiction to opiates, heroin becomes a cheaper alternative and brings with it a host of other public health problems."
