Data shows nearly half of Americans have been affected by addiction

November 1, 2017 – If you are reading this story, you or a loved one have probably been impacted by the disease of addiction. A recent study backs up that statement.

Respondents to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in August found 46% percent of adults in the United States have a relative or close friend who has struggled with addiction in their lives. The disease can affect everyone and does not discriminate based on gender, ethnicity, age, education, political ideology, etc. The figures reveal that too:

Identical shares of men and women say this (46% each), as do identical shares of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents when compared with Republicans and Republican leaners (also 46% each). There are no statistically significant differences between whites (46%), Hispanics (50%) and blacks (52%).

If you or a loved one are living with addiction and have any questions about the Malvern Intervention Services or the Malvern 90-Day Model, please give us a call at 610.MALVERN (610.625.8376).
