Polls about addiction

Polls reveal insights about addiction

Polls provide valuable insights into public perception of addiction. Unfortunately, many individuals still view addiction as a lack of willpower or a character flaw. However, public concern about addiction has decreased in recent years, according to a 2022 Pew Research Center survey. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) also provides estimates of substance use and mental illness at national, state, and substate levels, helping to identify the extent of addiction in society. It is important to understand public perceptions of addiction to better address the issue and provide effective treatment options.

Polls about addiction also shed light on the causes of addiction. A number of public opinion polls show that addiction to prescription pain medication is a serious or major problem nationally. Additionally, the NSDUH data help identify the extent of various substance use disorders, including alcohol and opioids/narcotics. In Addiction: A Disorder of Choice, Gene Heyman argues that drug addiction is a result of natural processes involving voluntary behavior. Understanding the causes of addiction is crucial for developing effective prevention and treatment strategies.

Finally, polls provide insight into attitudes towards treatment and recovery. A 2021 Gallup Poll found that 78% of respondents believe in specialist treatment such as rehabs and counseling for addiction. Stories of recovery have also been found to decrease prejudiced attitudes towards individuals with mental illness and addiction. However, negative attitudes towards those suffering from addiction still exist, with people more likely to have negative attitudes towards those with drug addiction than those with mental illness. These polls highlight the need for continued education and awareness to combat the stigma surrounding addiction and promote effective treatment and recovery options.

Addiction, is not just drugs

We create polls about addiction and didn't mean to talk only about drug addiction, because addiction can be called different things. Etc: alcohol, sweets, addiction to dopamine, TV, porn and so on. 

For now we have only one poll which is How much alcohol do you drink a month?. That poll show interesting result, where people almost equally drink in different positions.
