At the same time, the worst predictions about new crack epidemics and other drug addiction nightmares have turned out to be drug abuse scare stories.So what is the truth about drug addiction and chemical abuse? What should we expect? How should we respond to growing drug abuse?

"Drug addiction is far more serious than most people realise but the good news is that treatment for drug addiction works.There are many practical steps that can be taken to tackle the drug addiction problem. For example random compulsory testing for both drugs and alcohol should be introduced widely to identify those who need help, increase productivity and protect public safety.
