INTRODUCTIONIn the mid‐1990s, the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, in collaboration with the Centerfor Applied Research Solutions (CARS), Inc. began to work toward improving the state’s preventioninformation system. A key component of this information system was the continuous collection, monitoringand reporting of selected community‐level indicators that would serve as direct and indirect measures ofalcohol and other drug use prevalence and related problems. This information system was designed to assistwith state and local prevention planning and policy‐making by providing useful, systematic data aboutprevention and treatment needs and outcomes throughout the state.The present report is the most recent product of this ongoing effort. It differs from earlier versions in a fewimportant ways. First, while previous reports typically summarized data for more than twenty‐five indicators of healthand social conditions that are theoretically linked to problem substance use, the current version ismore streamlined, focusing on seven key indicators of AOD use and abuse prevalence and their directconsequences, including impacts on the criminal justice, health and alcohol and drug treatmentsystems. Second, the 2010 report updates information contained in earlier versions, but expands in its depth tosummarize data for populations within the larger county, including age, gender, and race/ethnicity subgroups.This expanded detail allows for more precise analyses of alcohol and drug use problems withina county population and enhances the ability to effectively target prevention and interventionstrategies to community needs.Similar to previous reports, the 2010 version includes simple analytic tools to help users interpret theinformation presented. This includes use of population‐based rates (e.g., the number of incidents relative tothe total population) to make meaningful comparisons between geographic areas that differ in populationsize, or comparisons between differing time points. Data is presented at both the county and state level toallow county rates to be evaluated against a relative average.The overall intent of the report is to provide a simple, easy‐to‐use resource that helps synthesize the mostrelevant indicator data currently available to assess substance use problems, in an effort to optimizeprevention planning and outcome measurement efforts in communities through the state. Specifically, it isdesigned to support the work of planners, policy‐makers, and practitioners in the field in: Determining the incidence of alcohol and other drug use problems within county populations and subpopulations; Monitoring trends in problem incidence to identify emergent issues and detect changes in status overtime; Establishing program resource levels that are appropriate to address the nature and extent ofprevention and treatment needs; and, Documenting progress toward achieving targeted prevention objectives and outcomes.The report contains information on several key indicators of alcohol and drug prevalence and consequencesfor California populations in each of the following seven indicators:1. Household prevalence of past year binge drinking;2. Admissions to publicly‐funded and/or monitored alcohol and other drug treatment facilities;3. Arrests for drug‐related criminal offenses;4. Arrests for alcohol‐related criminal offenses;5. Motor vehicle accidents involving drivers who had been drinking;6. Hospitalizations for alcohol and drug‐related conditions; and,7. Mortality attributable to acute and chronic alcohol and drug use.Indicators of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse • Introduction • San Luis Obispo County, California 1


Each report contains data compiled from several sources, including a statewide, longitudinal survey ofCalifornia household populations, and state data systems housing public archival records from six centralagencies, including the California Department of Justice (DOJ), the California Highway Patrol (CHP), theCalifornia Department of Public Health, Vital Statistics Section, the Office of Statewide Health Planning andDevelopment (OSHPD), the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP), and the University ofCalifornia, Los Angeles (UCLA). This reliance on statewide data sources ensures that the informationreported is drawn from reliable and valid measures that are routinely and uniformly collected acrossjurisdictions (i.e., all counties use the same data collection), allowing for comparisons over time, acrosscounties, and between counties and the state.Indicators of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse • Introduction • San Luis Obispo County, California 2


KEY FINDINGSIndicator 1: Prevalence of Past Year Binge DrinkingApproximately 34 percent of San Luis Obispo County residents age 18 and older participated inbinge drinking in 2007 compared to the statewide rate of 30 percent. Males participated in binge drinking much more frequently than females (45 percent versus 24percent) in 2007.Indicator 2: Admissions to Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Overall, admission rates to treatment facilities in San Luis Obispo County have increased since 2000.In 2000 there were about 317 admissions per 100,000 compared to 575 admissions per 100,000 in2008. San Luis Obispo County’s AOD admission rate was much lower than the state overall each yearuntil 2006 at which time it rose to a very similar rate. There may be differences in detoxification andnon‐detoxification service admission trends that affect this overall trend (see “Treatment DataClarifications” section on page 9 for detail). Admissions due to methamphetamine use accounted for 30 percent of all admissions in 2008.Admissions due to alcohol use accounted for roughly 22 percent of admissions, marijuana for 26percent of admissions, heroin for 6 percent of admissions, and crack/cocaine for 3 percent in 2008. Admission rates were highest among American Indians at 1,559 per 100,000 in 2008. The highest rate of admissions was for 25 to 34 year olds with a rate of 1,343 per 100,000 in 2008.The next highest rate was for 18 to 24 year olds with a rate of 1,265 per 100,000.Indicator 3: Arrests for Drug­Related CrimeCrime rates for felony and misdemeanor drug offenses decreased from 750 per 100,000 in 2000 to649 per 100,000 in 2008, after peaking in 2004 at 981 per 100,000. San Luis Obispo County’s drugarrest rate was lower than the state each year.Arrests due to dangerous drug offenses accounted for approximately 15 percent in 2008, narcoticsfor roughly 12 percent of drug arrests, marijuana for 43 percent of drug arrests, and 30 percent ofdrug arrests in 2008 were for other drug violations.The highest rate of arrests for drug‐related crime was for 18 to 24 year olds with a rate of 1,500 per100,000 in 2008. The next highest rate was for 25 to 34 year olds with a rate of 905 per 100,000.Indicators of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse • Key Findings • San Luis Obispo County, California 3


Indicator 4: Arrests for Alcohol­Related Crime Crime rates for felony and misdemeanor alcohol offenses increased from 2,222 per 100,000 in 2000to 2,380 per 100,000 in 2008. San Luis Obispo County’s alcohol arrest rate was significantly higherthan the state overall each year.Arrests due to driving‐under‐the‐influence accounted for approximately 51 percent in 2008, publicdrunkenness for roughly 41 percent of alcohol arrests, and 8 percent of alcohol arrests in 2008 werefor liquor law violations.Alcohol‐arrest rates were highest among Hispanics and Whites, at 2,620 and 2,425 per 100,000 in2008, respectively. The highest rate of arrests for alcohol‐related crime was for 18 to 24 year olds with a rate of 5,461per 100,000 in 2008. The next highest rate was for 25 to 34 year olds with a rate of 3,392 per100,000. 35 to 44 year olds also had a high rate at 2,480 per 100,000.Indicator 5: Alcohol­Involved Motor Vehicle AccidentsThe rate of fatalities in alcohol‐involved accidents was higher in San Luis Obispo County than thestate overall each year, except in 2002.Males accounted for nearly three‐fourths of total parties who had been drinking in alcohol‐involvedaccidents in 2008. During this year Blacks had the rate of 163 per 100,000, Hispanics had 243 per100,000 and Whites had 171 per 100,000.18 to 24 year olds (512 per 100,000) accounted for the highest rate of parties who had beendrinking in alcohol‐involved accidents in 2008. The next highest rate was for 25 to 34 year olds witha rate of 344 per 100,000.Indicator 6: Hospitalizations Due to Alcohol and Drug UseThe rate of hospitalizations due to alcohol and drug use increased from 216 per 100,000 in 2000 to224 per 100,000 in 2007.

Indicator 2: Admissions to Alcohol and Other DrugTreatmentThe number of admissions to publicly funded alcohol and other drug treatment facilities inCalifornia and rate of admission per 100,000 total population.Treatment Data ClarificationsFindings for Indicator 2: Admissions to Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment are based on total admissionsrather than unique client counts. Clients with multiple treatment admissions during the year tend to bias thedemographic and service characteristics described. These findings include admissions for both detoxificationand other treatment services. Detoxification services are short term, often repeated numerous times, andused primarily for alcohol or heroin treatment. The inclusion of admissions to detoxification services biasesthe demographic and service characteristics described.The Substance Abuse Crime Prevention Act (SACPA) was implemented in July 2001. Clients referred by thecriminal justice system compete for limited treatment services resources and are often given priority overclients referred by other sources. In 2000, criminal justice referrals made up only 26 percent of alladmissions. By 2004, criminal justice referrals made up 42% of the admissions. The influx of these clientswith their specific demographic and service characteristics impact the makeup of the treatment populationdescribed in the key findings. For instance, clients referred by the criminal justice system rarely usedetoxification services, and more often have a primary drug other than alcohol. Also, SACPA referred clientsdo not frequently use narcotic replacement treatment for heroin/opiate abuse. Consequently, the number ofadmissions to detoxification services has decreased as well as the number of admissions with alcohol orheroin as their primary drug problem compared with pre‐SACPA levels.Table 2.1Number of Admissions to Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment and Rate per 100,000 Total Population withComparison to Statewide Rates2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008Number of TreatmentAdmissions786 796 809 964 1,251 1,470 1,503 1,650 1,530Total Population 248,322 252,361 254,709 256,842 259,709 261,243 262,799 264,485 266,205Rate per 100,000 316.52 315.42 317.62 375.33 481.69 562.69 571.92 623.85 574.75CALIFORNIARate per 100,000647.98 706.60 703.16 668.97 645.41 643.64 599.12 602.30 591.63Figure 2.1San Luis ObispoCounty TreatmentAdmission Rateper 100,000 TotalPopulation withComparison toStatewide Rates7507006506005505004504003503002000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008CountyCaliforniaIndicators of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse • Alcohol and Drug Treatment • San Luis Obispo County, California 9
