"Drugs and alcohol seem to be everywhere in our society. Some people feel that they need to drink or take drugs to have fun or just to feel 'normal.' An addiction to drugs or alcohol can become a serious problem not only for individuals, but also for the people who love them. Fortunately, there are ways to treat the disorder and get better. The lives of millions of kids are affected by mental illness. And yet it's all too common for kids to feel like they are alone with their problems.
