 Addiction is not a weakness. People of all ages, classes, and ethnic backgrounds can get an addiction. 23.1 million persons aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem (9.1%).

Parents are the most effective resource, and leverage point, in preventing and reducing adolescent and young adult drug and alcohol abuse and addiction.
