Defeating Addiction and Alcoholism

Effective Survival Strategies

Many teens experiment with alcohol and drugs, but experimenting can quickly turn into addiction for some. With so many celebrities checking in and out of rehab, it may seem like addiction is no big deal, maybe even glamorous. However, it is a very real problem: According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 3 percent of young adults are dependent on alcohol, while 11 percent are dependent on illicit drugs. This useful resource teaches readers what addiction is, who is at risk, how to identify the problem, and how to find help when things get out of hand.
