Holistix Treatment Centers – Addiction Treatment
Drug addiction is a challenge facing millions of Americans, lurking in classrooms, offices, and living rooms from coast to coast. With the ability to destroy relationships, sideline careers, and interfere with home lives, addiction is deeply serious.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, approximately 7.1 million individuals aged 12 or older meet the criteria for a drug use disorder, while 6.4 million have an alcohol use disorder. Further, roughly 8.2 million teens and adults have used illicit drugs in the last month, while 56% of those 18 and older have had alcohol in the previous month.
Substance abuse can pose significant threats to wellness, happiness, stability, and health. The more you know about drug and alcohol addiction, the better positioned you are to both identify and properly cope with signs of addiction in those you love – or in yourself.
