Data Review of Analytical Report (DAWN) Alcohol Profile
Researchers at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration explore emergency department (ED) visits related to alcohol in this report. The information summarizes unweighted data from a subset of 17 hospitals that have completed data abstraction on all ED visits related to alcohol from January through August 2020. Among these hospitals during this time period, alcohol was the most common substance involved in these substance-related ED visits. Of the alcohol-related visits for patients under age 21, over half involved more than one substance.
This report, DAWN Alcohol Profile, is part of the Preliminary DAWN Data Review, a SAMHSA publication.
