You've heard the statistics before … "Approximately one in every 10 Americans over the age of 12, roughly equal to the entire population of Texas, are addicted to alcohol and drugs" … so it's nothing new. These are big numbers, and often difficult to break down in terms of individual and community responsibility. It often comes down to support -- listening, helping to find a treatment provider, and offering words of encouragement as he or she goes through the recovery journey.
