Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Chemical dependency is a major health problem in the United States ranking third among major health problems and surpassed only by cancer and heart disease. The social costs associated with chemical dependency are estimated to be over $40 billion annually. These social costs are reflected by such factors as lost job productivity, the medical costs of treating alcohol and drug related illnesses and injuries, the property damages and 25,000 lives lost per year to intoxicated drivers, and the cost of administering justice to those who are arrested and convicted of chemical abuse related offenses (Zimberg, 1982).
