INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM
How Addiction Affects Americans
Are you aware that 2/3 of Americans consume illegal drugs? The country may have witnessed a massive drop in the number of drug users to 12 million in 1992 as opposed to 25.4 million in 1979, but it still rose up to 20.4 million in 2006. This means the DEA’s fight against illegal trafficking and substance abuse has proved to be futile, thus painting a bad picture of the world’s superpower. Here is where the problem lies;
61 million Americans are chain cigarette smokers while 16-20 million are alcoholics. Moreover, 15 million have either tasted or hooked to marijuana. Worse still, hundreds of thousands are addicted to heroin while 2.4 million use cocaine, ecstasy, and prescription drugs. Looking it at from a humanistic approach, most alcohol and drug users are involved in the most violent and property crimes, with 80% of nation’s jailbirds committing the offense under the influence or stealing to finance their addictions. That is how bad the situation has escalated. Fortunately, the government is doing everything it can to nab traffickers and help users to start on a clean slate thanks to Los Angeles IOP.
