Addiction affects 23.2 million Americans — of whom only about 10 percent are receiving the treatment they need. Drug addiction is a dependence on an illegal drug or a medication. When you're addicted, you may not be able to control your drug use and you may continue using the drug despite the harm it causes. Drug addiction is a disease, but a treatable disease.
