The Idaho Prevention and Treatment Research (PATR) Workgroup exists to develop a system of substance abuse-related data collection, analysis and reporting that reflects substance abuse consumption and consequences throughout Idaho.

The site is intended for use by multiple agencies on both the state and community level as a source for data collected and aggregated by the PATR Workgroup. PATR seeks to develop and implement a collaborative system of substance-abuse related data. Using collection, analysis, and reporting that reflects substance abuse and its related consequences throughout Idaho, PATR facilitates the evaluation of service outcomes.

  • Idaho Drug and Alcohol Related Offenses and Arrests

    The Idaho Statistical Analysis Center (ISAC) resides within the Planning, Grants and Research Department of the Idaho State Police. The overall purpose of ISAC, as established by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, is the systematic collection, analysis, and dissemination of statistics related to crime, illegal drugs, victim services, and the administration of justice.

  • Adults’ Perceptions on Issues Related to Underage Drinking in Idaho

    The Idaho Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) task force, affiliated with the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections (IDJC) and charged with addressing problems related to underage drinking partnered with the Office of Drug Policy establlished during the 2007 legislative session in response to an identified need for a more comprehensive approach to the prevention of underage drinking. In 2011 a survey was prepared for IDJC as part of the effort to combat underage drinking in Idaho in assessing how adult residents perceive a number of issues related to underage drinking.

  • Results from the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH):Mental Health Findings/SAMHSA

    Presents national estimates of the prevalence of past year mental disorders and mental health service utilization for youths aged 12 to 17 and adults aged 18 and older. Data related to the co-occurrence of mental disorders with substance abuse also are presented.

    Comparing the BACs of drivers in fatal crashes with a random sample of similar drivers on the road who have not been involved in a crash is a standard method for estimating the extent to which driving after drinking raises of risk of being in a crash relative to sober drivers. In 1996, the third national roadside survey provided a random sample of drivers using US roads which was compared with drivers in fatal crashes using the fatality analysis reporting system (FARS) maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). That study showed that at a given BAC the relative risk of being in a crash was the same for adult men and women. However fewer women than men reach the high BAC levels(.08 and greater) which are typical of drinking drivers in fatal crashes so fewer women are involved in alcohol related crashes. In contrast to adults, the 1996 study found that men under age 21 were at greater risk at a given BAC than young women under 21, Suggesting that young women were more careful drivers an drove les at high risk time such as late at night. The national roadside survey conducted 10 years later in 2007 provided another opportunity to compute the relative risk of crash involvement based on BAC. As in 1996, adult men and women were found to exhibit the same level of relative risk at any given BAC. However in contrast in 1996, there was no difference between young men and young women in the relative risk of being involved in an alcohol-related crash, given that they had the same BAC. We found that the relative risk for young women had increased over the decade since 1996 apparently reflecting an increase in risk taking and risk exposure through more nighttime driving and perhaps more drinking and more high-risk driving. While the relative risk for young female drinking drivers increased, the risk of crash involvement for non-drinking young men under 21 increased. The data from the surveys do not indicate why these changes occurred. but perhaps the increase in crash involvement of sober young drivers is related to the increasing use of cell phones while driving. Another opportunity to study potential changes in the relative risk of crashing will occur in 2013 within the next national roadside survey will be conducted. The 2007 survey has provided a number of clues to the changing impaired driving scene in the US. We will use this experience to add questions to the 2013 survey to help clarify why we are seeing changes in the relative risk of crashing of drivers under 21.

  • Alcohol and Public Health: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

    The Alcohol Program conducts applied public health research to assess the relationship between excessive drinking and other health and social outcomes, including unintended pregnancy, youth risk behaviors (e.g., sexual activity), violence, and alcohol-impaired driving. The Alcohol Program is also working with the CDC’s Community Guide Branch to systematically review the effectiveness of population-based interventions to prevent excessive alcohol consumption and related health outcomes for publication in the Alcohol Section of the Guide to Community Preventive Services.
