Drug and Alcohol Addiction in America

In the past, addiction was viewed as a moral failing or a sign of a weakness. Today, society has begun to realize that drug addiction is a devastating, chronic brain disease. Each year, millions of Americans try drugs like alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, or heroin for the first time, and a disturbing percentage of these people will be unable to stop without help.

Approximately 48.7 million Americans over the age of 12 struggle with addiction in 2022. Anyone can be affected, and this issue can hit reasonably close to home.
