i totally agree with the claim. Alcohol is legal,yet it is the most abused drug worldwide. Alcohol is one of the most prevalent types of addiction in the United States. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism state that nearly 18 million people are dependent on alcohol. Alcoholism is a lifelong disease that typically requires formal treatment for a permanent recovery, although some people will utilize special services for a large portion of their life to stay in recovery. Alcohol is also reported as being one of the most commonly abused substances when there is a dual diagnosis, or multiple addictions, present.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
