Family History Of Substance Abuse Leads To Higher Addiction Rates

Harbor Village Detox comments on study which shows that families with a history of drug abuse can lead to higher addiction rates.

A worrying report emerged in Medical Daily on November 18. It claimed that children who come from a familial background of substance abuse are more susceptible to addiction themselves – meaning that they have an uphill struggle to resist impulses and resist dependency.

They cite a report issued by the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, which claims that kids who grow up around an alcoholic are four times likelier to hit the bottle themselves in later life. However, this might not be owing to environmental factors like experts first thought, but the way their brain is programmed to function.

That's because the forebrain is compromised, with their ability to make sensible decisions, keep impulses in check, and have a functioning memory at risk. Dozens of children – who hail from a background where an alcoholic was in the family – took part in a clinical trial, along with 30 kids who did not. In concluding their research, academics found that although the forebrains of vulnerable children tend to work overtime, it doesn't yield efficient results.

It is hoped that these findings will help experts to understand the triggers for drug and alcohol abuse, enabling the industry to focus more on prevention. With studies ongoing, researchers are determined to get concrete answers to the warning signs. Every year, more than 23 million US citizens have to go through a rehabilitative program to quell their substance abuse, which shows that demand for such studies remains high.

This could also lead to efforts being ramped up to offer further education to children who are identified as at risk in schools across the country. When coupled with additional resources online, work can begin to develop their reasoning skills and understand the full consequences that alcohol abuse can have.
