More in the U.S. are fighting addiction than are battling all forms of cancer combined. Tens of millions of users, hundreds of billions of dollars – per year. Loss is seen in negative socio-economic consequences from breakdown of the family to increased accidents and abuse, and in the form of an overflowing criminal justice system, not to mention seemingly bottomless health care costs.
