Drug Use Among Blacks

*cues Michael* “It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white!” 🎶 – ‘cuz “numbas don’t lie, check da scoreboard” 🎵👆🏾 … sooo, it’s Day 4 of #NationalDrugAndAlcoholFactsWeek and today Tameika Cheek, LPC and I are assessing how you feel about the realization that drugs aren’t colorblind. We’ve extracted information from SAMSHA’s (2,899 page 😳😳😳) 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health to provide you with the above chart which depicts the number of Black/African-Americans aged 18+ who engaged in illicit drug use/prescription drug misuse in 2016. What are your thoughts?! Having sorted through thousands of pages for this info, we’ve earned our keep 😂 so stop being shy and dialogue with us!
