Drug addicts are sometimes stereotyped as poor, homeless or only teens.

While morals may be an issue in that addicts make decisions that are questionable as regards morals, it doesn’t matter what someone’s income level is, their education level, their intelligence or their religion – they can become addicted to drugs.

There is no class, age, religion, political leaning or familial ties that define person addicted to drugs. White collar, blue collar, employed or not, drug addiction can touch anyone. And opioids have exacerbated the problem.
