Addiction affects millions of lives across America each year. It is estimated that 10% of Americans will experience some form of substance use disorder in their lives, and only 1 in 10 will receive treatment. There is no one cause for someone to become addicted and it is possible for anyone to develop a substance use disorder or behavioral addiction.
Though addiction levels are on the rise, help is available for everyone. At Recovered, we aim to provide up-to-date information about drug, alcohol, and behavioral addiction and the treatment options available. All of our guides are reviewed by trained medical professionals to ensure that we provide reliable and helpful advice.
Addiction can be devastating to individuals, families, and communities. It costs the government over 35 billion dollars a year and has claimed over 700 thousand lives in the past twenty years alone. Being aware of the facts on drug and alcohol abuse, what treatment is available, and how to get yourself or loved ones into treatment for addiction can save lives.
