There were over 7,000 people at a political rally that erupted in fighting, a melee of several hundred men. On the right, were men fighting for Abraham Lincoln, and on the left were those fighting for Jefferson Davis.

Is Addiction Genetically Inherited?
There is ample research that suggests and confirms that drug and alcohol addiction can be passed down genetically from parents to their children. It should also be noted that not every child of an addict will automatically become addicted. It's a genetic predisposition. Not every child will even abuse the same substances.
Genetic predisposition isn't the only way addictions are developed. People may develop addiction to drugs and alcohol through repeated use, and stemming from other predispositions, like psychological and mental health issues.
Addiction is a chronic behavioral and psychological disease, and is treated in a similar manner as other chronic diseases.
Typically, treatment is a multi-pronged approach including clinical treatment, psychological and behavior treatment, as well as preventive counseling.
