Which of these are risk factors for addiction? (Choose the best answer)
Discussion: Genetics, early onset, and co-occurring mental health issues are all proven risk factors for addiction. Having one or more of these risk factors does not mean that someone is destined to become addicted however it just means that the chances are higher. We know from adoption studies that addiction can pass from one generation to the next genetically. We know that more people who become addicted started using early in life than those who didn’t. Struggling with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, or Bipolar disorder can increase the likelihood of addiction especially when someone gets high to try to manage these symptoms instead of learning health coping skills. Again, even if you have risk factors, you still can make healthy decisions now to prevent addiction from occurring in your life

Detox from which of these substances is most dangerous?
Discussion: Withdrawal and detoxification for any substance has its risks and dangers. However, withdrawal related specifically to alcohol or benzodiazepine (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Ativan) dependence brings with it a seizure risk that can be deadly. Therefore, detoxification from these substances should take place in a setting which is monitored by trained medical staff who are aware of the risks. Sadly, young people may experiment with benzodiazepines (aka “benzos”) such as Xanax, thinking that there is little risk or harm, but in reality, if you become dependent there is a significant health and safety risk.
