People of all ages, from adolescent years (12-17) to young adults (18-25), and throughout adult and elderly years, struggle with addiction and addictive behavor. Addiction can destroy everything around someone who suffers from it. One in every eight Americans have an addiction, with 40 percent of that group having a dual-diagnosis. Often when someone struggles with addiction and realizes their need for help, affording it is nearly impossible. Because of this financial barrier, many people will lose hope or give up their dreams of being free, due to the high cost of addiction treatment. Treatment is possible and affordable.
There are behavioral-related addictions, such as gambling, shopping, and excessive video or internet use, and there are substance-related addictions, such as alcohol, drugs, and nicotine. In the USA, the top most common substance addictions are: tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, painkillers, cocaine, heroin, benzodiazepines, stimulants, inhalants, and sedatives.
There are many types of treatments for addictions. NIDA reports that 14,500 specialized substance abuse treatment programs provide a variety of care options. These include therapeutic methods, pharmaceutical tools, and complementary forms of medicine. Long-term and short-term, outpatient and inpatient, individualized and group treatment programs present different ways for recovery.
