Are All Who Struggle With Addiction Equal? Eighty-five million people in the United States are directly impacted by addiction, and 11 million teens and young adults currently need treatment. So many are touched by the disease, and addiction is not a one-size-fits-all issue. So how exactly does addiction impact different segments of society?
