Study of the impact of substance abuse on state budgets

The purpose of this project is for The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA) to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the cost of substance abuse to the budgets of each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The costs of substance abuse to states and the amount of state taxes paid by individuals and businesses to deal with these problems have never been quantified state-by-state across the nation. CASA will: (1) construct a model for analyzing direct and indirect state costs for addiction and substance abuse; (2) analyze data to develop estimates of the costs of addiction and substance abuse for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; (3) test and refine the model in selected, representative states; and (4) use the refined model to document the costs to each state. RWJF funds will be used to match funding from the Starr Foundation; additional funding for the project will be provided by NIDA and other foundations.
