Hawaii is an American state, one of the isolated group of six volcanic islands in the central Pacific Ocean known as the Hawaiian Islands. The group of islands has a population of about 1.4 million people. Hawaii's capital, Honolulu, is best known for its Pearl Harbor World War II memorials and the crescent-shaped beaches of Waikiki Beach. A popular vacation destination for families and couples alike, Hawaii boasts an ideal climate, with landscapes including rugged cliffs, tropical waterfalls, and colorful, sandy beaches.
Hawaii is nearly the only US state which has not been significantly affected by the opioid epidemic and has maintained steady numbers in alcohol and drug abuse well below the national average. However, the Prevention Status Report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports a binge drinking rate of 21.5 percent among adults in Hawaii, compared to the 18.3 percent national average. Also slightly above the national average is the amount of alcohol consumed by Hawaii residents aged fourteen and older, and the number of drinks involved in binge drinking.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Hawaii had seventy-seven opioid-related overdose deaths in 2016, a rate of 5.2 per 100,000 people, which is less than half the national average. Although Hawaii does not struggle with the opioid crisis on the levels of other states in the country, the state has long struggled with abuse of other drugs, namely methamphetamines. According to the 2015 Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the vast majority of addiction treatment admissions among Hawaii residents was for methamphetamine. In 2015, methamphetamine abuse and addiction accounted for more than one-third of all treatment admissions among individuals aged twelve and older, about five times more than the admissions for heroin and other opioids combined.
