“Alcohol kills more teenagers than all other drugs combined.”
Recent studies show that thirty-two percent of heavy drinkers over the age of twelve have also used illegal drugs. Loss of control, an overwhelmed mindset, and hopelessness affect the mind of someone who is suffering from alcohol dependency. Addiction does not discriminate against age nor race nor class. Understanding where to seek help for these issues can benefit you now and you will be grateful in the future.
