Is Drug and Alcohol Addiction Genetically Inherited?
There is plenty of research that confirms that drug and alcohol addiction can be passed down from parents, and is genetically inherited.
The National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD) reported that the risk of addiction passing down to offspring genetically does exist. The study also found that just because a genetic predisposition may exist, it doesn't automatically mean children of addicts will automatically become addicted to drugs or alcohol.
Not every child will even abuse the same substances of their parents, automatically.
Genetic predisposition also isn't mandatory for the development of addictions. People may develop dependency on drugs and alcohol through repeated use, and based on other predispositions like psychological or mental health issues.
Addiction is a chronic behavioral and psychological disease, and is treated like many other chronic diseases by treating the patient on a clinical and psychological level (therapy and behavioral treatment).
