    The high prevalence of alcohol and drug abuse and mental illness imposes a substantial financial burden on those affected and on society.

    The authors present estimates of the economic costs from these causes for 1985 and 1988, based on current and reliable data available from national surveys and the use of new costing methodology.

    The total losses to the economy related to alcohol and drug abuse and mental illness for 1988 are estimated at $273.3 billion.

    The estimate includes $85.8 billion for alcohol abuse, $58.3 billion for drug abuse, and $129.3 billion for mental illness.
