Abstract The 2010 Census notes that 12.3 percent of the population (38.9 million people) are non-Hispanic African-Americans or blacks (hereafter called blacks). The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is committed to reducing disparities in access to and quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. The overall health and well-being of the Nation is improved by the extent to which the entire population has access to substance use treatment if it is needed. Understanding whether blacks with alcohol and illicit drug abuse problems seek and receive specialty treatment may help improve treatment and outreach programs for this population.
