Baby Boomers and Drug Addiction

May 31st, 2011 · No Comments

According to a recent news report, some 5 percent of the 78 million boomers admit to abusing drugs – and experts are calling it a booming addiction. A recent government report showed that record numbers of baby boomers are in treatment for drug abuse.

The number of people over 50 treated for heroin abuse has more than doubled since 1992, those treated for cocaine addiction quadrupled, and even more shocking, five times as many boomers were in treatment for prescription drug abuse.

A lot of boomers grew up doing drugs, and experts said many never stopped – or are turning to them again to help cope with the normal stresses of aging.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, unlike other generations, boomers are facing a vast array of health problems, including high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and arthritis.
