The Cost of Addiction

“A long-term addiction to drugs and alcohol will not only take a toll on your health and well-being, it will also cripple your personal finances. In order to explore the actual financial impact of an addiction, we calculated the estimated costs of addiction to some of the most commonly abused substances over a variety of timeframes.”

For each of the substances included in our study, we looked at the number of down payments that could have been put down on a median priced home [], the number of average priced cars [] that could have been purchased, and the number of bachelor’s degrees at an in-state public college [] that could have been covered.”
