OLDER ADDICTS

In 2005, 184,400 Americans who were admitted to drug treatment programs (roughly 10% of the total) were over 50, up from 143,000, (8%) in 2001. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration foresees 4.4 million older substance abusers by 2020 vs. 1.7 million in 2001. The numbers are "likely to swamp the current system," says agency executive Deborah Trunzo.
