Drug Addiction Problems Ruin Millions of UK Families

An amazing new study out of England showed that 1 in 5 people have either had a drug addiction problem themselves, within their family, or their circle of friends. That’s in the UK – not including Ireland – which has a population of about 70 million. So, 14 million people in the UK have had direct experience with drug addiction.

It would be nice to see a similar study done in the U.S. I’m sure we would come up with similar results.

Further breakdown showed that 1 in 50 people have been addicted to drugs, and 1 in 20 have had drug addiction in their direct family.  That boils down to about 3.5 million families who have had to cope everything drug addiction causes – break-ups, continuous upsets and frustration, worry about whether or not the addicted person is even going to be alive the next day, jobs lost, financial ruin, kids taken away by social services, and on and on and on.

It’s no wonder why more and more people are taking antidepressants and tranquilizers – and the drugs people take to cope with the stress are also going to cause addictions.

It’s a mess.
