10 percent of U.S adults have or will have a substance use disorder at some point in their lives, and less than half of these people will receive treatment. This statistic isn’t shocking, what is shocking is that 50% of the iGeneration (kids ages 6 through 24) reported that they or one of there friends has a drug or alcohol problem, and 25% say they don’t know how they can get help.
While we don’t know if stress can be directly linked with the rise in substance use disorder and alcohol abuse, we do know that stress plays a big role in the lack of treatment. The stress of money, health issues and work are the top stressors American’s face today, according to a study done by APA. In fact, over 50% of Americans reported higher levels of stress when it came to the cost and access of mental health services.
