• The fact of the matter is that well over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 have an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Some studies even put this number as high as twenty-five million or so. This is the rough situation of the vicious cycle of addiction in that addiction only worsens and worsens and worsens with no real sign of it getting any better any time soon.
• 9.4 million people in 2011 reported driving under the influence of illicit drugs. This is part of what contributes to so much drunk and drugged driving accidents and fatalities. Truthfully, addiction is the number one cause of vehicular fatalities in the nation. Drinking and doing drugs while driving is still a serious issue today and simply continues to get worse and worse as the years go by too.
• Rates of illicit drug use are highest among those aged 18 to 25. Sadly, this is also the age demographic that stands to lose the most from an addiction crisis and this age range is also the age range that stands to get in the most trouble from drug and alcohol abuse and addiction. It is also the age demographic that has the highest likelihood of spreading drugs to other young adults too.
