Drug addiction can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, race, or socioeconomic status. However, certain factors such as genetics, family history of addiction, history of trauma or abuse, mental health issues, peer pressure, and environmental factors can increase the risk of drug addiction. Additionally, some demographics such as young adults and adolescents may be at a higher risk due to factors such as peer pressure, curiosity, and impulsivity.
