New National Inhalant Data: Inhalant Use on the Decline

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently released its “Recent Declines in Adolescent Inhalant Use” which was based on their 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. 
The report revealed that US teens ages 12 to 17 using inhalants decreased from 820,000 in 2011 to about 650,000 in 2012.  Additionally, rates decreased from 4.4 percent in 2006 to 2.6 percent in 2012. 

In December last year, Monitoring the Future also showed a decline in inhalant use. For further info on that study, click here.
