On this ground, I have decided to conduct further research on drug and alcohol addiction, being a subject area of huge significance especially in determining certain causes or factors if issues that emerge out of trouble within the family, search for identity, problem with career, and several other more personal conflicts.

As observed in reality, every person who has abused the use of drugs and alcohol bears negative impact on the lives of others who may commit quality-of-life crimes themselves. Moreover, studies demonstrate that drug and alcohol addiction is widely associated to cases of human trafficking, murder, sexual assault, theft and robbery, juvenile delinquencies, different forms of violence, suicide, and other criminal or unlawful acts that run contrary to promoting ethics, heath, and life of peace.
Purpose Statement: The purpose of this paper is to distinguish between drug addiction and alcohol addiction then investigate on the prevalence of drug and alcohol addiction in the U.S., detailing some specific worst instances documented in the past and recent times. It would, however, narrow its scope on the American youth sector where root causes and consequences of alcohol and drug abuse are to be explored at depth. In part, the paper would aim as well to cover discussion of the existing measures implemented by the American government, how effective these measures are, and what else can be done to improve such measures on preventing and possibly finding solutions to eradicate drug and alcohol addiction completely among the youth.
What has the federal government established by law in order to address drug and alcohol addiction? Have the actions taken by government authorities been adequate
