The percentage of drug addicts who achieve long-term recovery can vary depending on several factors, including the type of drug, the severity of the addiction, the duration of the addiction, and the availability of support and treatment. However, studies have shown that with the appropriate treatment and support, many drug addicts can achieve long-term recovery. For example, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that among individuals who completed a substance abuse treatment program, the percentage who reported abstaining from drug use for the past month ranged from 47.5% to 68.5% in the year following treatment. While achieving and maintaining recovery can be a challenging process, it’s important to seek professional help and support to help manage the addiction and improve the chances of successful recovery.
