Press Conference


September Press Conference

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) unveiled the results of the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health at a press conference on Thursday, September 10. The annual survey, formerly called the “Household Survey” is the largest of its kind, and is the government’s primary vehicle for determining how many persons are abusing illegal drugs, pharmaceuticals, alcohol and tobacco.

The release of the 2008 survey results was the keynote of the 20th annual National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month press conference marking a month long observance recognizing the accomplishments of people in recovery, the contributions of treatment providers and advances in substance abuse treatment and recovery throughout the nation.
