Addiction can hit successful people


Re: "Junkies should live with their choices,"

Mar. 1:

It is ridiculous in saying that there should be no help or hope for people who are addicted to drugs because they should live with it. If a drug-addicted person (not junkie) is looking to get clean and wants help, it should be there for them.

From prescription drug addictions to a heroin addiction the key word is "addiction." It’s a disease and is something that many people are predisposed to genetically.

Yes, for many the first time using a drug is a choice, although even a casual social experimentation by the most high profile successful people can turn into an addiction.
