New Hampshire is the state with the second-highest per capita rate of residents seeking drug and alcohol rehabilitation services, according to a new study.

The study, conducted by addiction treatment resource Addiction Treatment Magazine, analyzed Google data for common terms associated with rehabilitation and rehabilitation facilities to determine the states seeking drug and alcohol rehabilitation the most. Alcohol-related rehabilitation was universally the most searched-for topic throughout all 50 states.

According to the study, New Hampshire averaged 362 rehab-related searches per 100,000 people. The most searched term in the state was “AA meetings near me,” averaging 1,125 monthly searches before adjusting for population.

Taking the top spot was Indiana, where the magazine found an average of 477 rehab-related searches per 100,000 people. “Rehab for alcohol” proved to be the most popular search term, averaging 3,266 monthly searches.

Ranking third on the list was Vermont, averaging 303 rehab-related searches per 100,000 people. In the Green Mountain State, “AA meetings near me” also was the most searched term relating to drug and alcohol rehabilitation, with an average of 481 monthly searches before adjusting for population.

Rounding out the top 10 were Rhode Island, with an average of 268 rehab-related searches per 100,000 people; Delaware, with 260 rehab-related searches per 100,000 people.
