Drug and alcohol addiction is a significant problem in the U.S. and millions of citizens are affected. According to the NIDA, drug abuse is highest among the young population, specifically in late teenage years and the twenties. Moreover, data shows that in 2013, over 24.6 million people, ages 12 or older, reported using an illicit drug within the past month.
Drug and alcohol abuse is directly linked to the development of psychological and physical dependence. Once psychological dependence occurs, the disease of addiction overpowers the impacted person. Having knowledge of the risks and effects of substance use is paramount to preventive measures as well as addiction treatment effectiveness.
For those who are battling drug and alcohol addiction, there is a help and sober recovery is attainable. Tailored treatment and rehab services aim to assist people living with an addiction to find recovery.
