Addiction to drugs and alcohol impacts people of all ages, classes and ethnic backgrounds. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an estimated 20.7 million people aged 12 or older needed substance use treatment in 2017. Yet, that year, only 4 million people received specialty treatment.
