An essential guide for teens struggling with alcoholism and addiction.

In 2006, nearly 11 million young people from the ages of 12 to 20 reported using alcohol, and nearly 10 percent of those aged 12 to 17 reported using illicit drugs. Alcohol and drug abuse often starts younger than most people are aware of, and the key to addressing and preventing this problem is to educate young people about the risks and factors involved. Alcoholism and drug addiction are substance use disorders—chronic, but treatable, brain disorders. Though the exact cause of alcoholism and drug addiction is unknown, genetics, environment, and mental illness may play a role.

Living with Alcoholism and Drug Addiction is a straightforward guide that closely examines this disease, its consequences on day-to-day life, and where to go for help. Featuring real-life examples of people struggling with alcoholism and drug addiction, as well as helpful appendixes listing organizations, support groups, online resources, and further reading, this new resource is ideal for teens facing this disorder or for those who have family members or friends coping with it.
