Description

Description:
Current estimates suggest that approximately 18 million Americans struggle with alcohol abuse and dependence and 4 million suffer from a substance use disorder. One in four deaths in America can be attributed to the effects of alcohol, tobacco, or illicit substances, and as many as 75% of domestic violence victims report that their abuser was drinking alcohol or using illicit substances at the time of the assault. Given the commonly accepted formula for measuring the effect of a person with a substance use disorder on another person, it is estimated that up to six people are affected by one person with a substance use disorder. In other words, approximately 92.7 to 139.1 million Americans are frequently affected by someone's substance use disorder.
