An addiction to anything can be one of the most challenging obstacle to overcome. It takes a lot of strength, self-control, support, and determination.
Addiction extends beyond drugs and alcohol.
Other addictions can be psychologically addictive, which is equally as difficult to overcome, even though they may not have the physical withdrawals.
About one in every ten Americans who are 12 years old or older is addicted to drugs and alcohol. However, out of this percentage, only 11% of those suffering seek help.
