National Survey of Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)

Incarceration Snapshot

The National Survey of Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is an annual nationally representative survey providing information on the prevalence, correlates, and trends of drug use in the U.S. The chief aim of the NSDUH is to facilitate the understanding of the consequences of substance use and abuse and identify those who are at high risk of abuse. Information on contact with the criminal justice system (including arrest, probation, and parole) is collected, including prevalence, frequency, and type of offense. Additionally, information is collected regarding treatment for drug use/abuse while incarcerated.
