Addiction is not prejudice. It can latch on to someone regardless or race, career, family, ethnicity, financial status, personality, responsibility, and more. Truly, people who find themselves struggling with addictions of various kinds are often surprised that it could happen to them. Addiction is prevalent in the USA. Reportedly, 23.5 million Americans are addiction to alcohol or other drugs. That’s about 1 in every 10 Americans over the age of 12 years.
Today, it seems the list of possible addictions keeps multiplying:
- Sex Addiction
- Gambling Addiction
- Shopping Addiction
- Marijuana Addiction (yes, it turns our cannabis is much more addictive that was originally thought
- Addiction to prescription pain killers
- Opioid addiction
