This Drug and Alcohol Services Information System report summarizes key findings from the 2005 Treatment Episode Data Set pertaining to substance abuse treatment admissions for males with co-occurring disorders. Among male admissions report¬ing alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, or stimulants as the primary substance of abuse, those with co-occurring disorders were more likely than those without this dual diagnosis to report daily use. The report also notes that use of multiple substances of abuse was more common among males with co-occurring disorders than among males without them (62 vs.52%). In addition, males with dual diagnoses were more likely to report five or more prior substance abuse treatment episodes (17 vs. 10%). The 3-page report also provides data concerning age at first use and employment histories and bar charts illustrating all of the major findings.
