2013 NMCS SUMMARY OF RESULTS Over 20% of males reported smoking cigarettes every day Over 25% of males reported binge drinking in the past 30 days 18-20 year olds report the highest prevalence of driving under the influence and after 5 or more drinks compared to all other age groups; but they are not reporting the most drinking or binge drinking Rx pain killer use is most prevalent among 18-20 year olds and 31 to 40 year olds. Current binge drinkers are almost twice as likely to report using Rx pain killers.
2013 NMCS SUMMARY OF RESULTS In the past year, males were almost twice as likely as females to report having suicidal thoughts 18 to 20 year olds were far less likely to have received professional help for a mental health or substance abuse problem despite reporting some of the highest reported prevalences of past 30-day & past year mental health problems and suicidal ideation 31-40 year olds also experience a higher prevalence of mental health problems than other ages but they also are most likely to receive treatment. Binge drinkers are far more likely to report having had a mental health/drug/alcohol problem in the past year but only equally likely to get professional help for it Over 72% of respondents thought it was very easy or somewhat easy for teens to get alcohol in their communities

PREVALENCE OF ATOD USE AMONG MALES AT PRE- AND POST-TEST
CHANGE IN THE PREVALENCE OF FEMALE RESPONDENTS WHO REPORTED ATOD USE PRE- TEST COMPARED TO POST-TEST (N= 32)

PERCENT OF ALL RESPONDENTS WHO REPORTED ANY Rx DRUG MISUSE PRE- AND POST-TEST
PERCENT WHO PERCEIVED MODERATE OR GREAT RISK OF HARM
PERCENT WHO PERCEIVED ATTITUDES TOWARDS ALCOHOL AS WRONG OR VERY WRONG
SUMMARY OF SFS FINDINGS Alcohol remains the substance used most widely for both males and females. ATOD use increased only slightly, if at all, and is likely attributable to maturation Among those youth already using any substance at pre-test, there were dramatic decreases in prevalence at post-test for almost everyone with some notable exceptions. Hispanic females -cigarettes and marijuana Hispanic males – cigarettes Prevalence at post-test among Native American males and females who reported using any substance at pre-test decreased across the board.
SUMMARY OF SFS FINDINGS Males increased their prescription drug use from pre- to post-test however, females started higher than males and did not change. Perceived risk of harm increased modestly but is still lower than ideal. Perceived attitudes did not change but were already quite high.
