With 2.5 million seniors struggling with a drug or alcohol problem in the U.S., elderly substance abuse grows more severe every day, and yet the understanding of and response to this health crisis is seriously lagging. To get seniors the help they need, it is imperative to know how and why the elderly use medications and other drugs, and which options for rehab care are the most successful for them. Senior substance use disorders can be treated, and recovery is possible for anyone, no matter their age.
