Addiction & Brain

In 2008, 3.5% to 5.7% of the world's population aged 15-64, used non-prescribed psychoactive medication. Globally cannabis usage is seen in 129-190 million people, next is amphetamines, cocaine and opioids. According to the American Medical Association 13.5 % of the US population has an Alcohol Abuse Disorder. Alcohol Abuse disorders are particularly common among bipolar disorders patients, with a long term prevalence of 50%. Nearly, US$ 200 billion-250 billion would be required to cover all costs related to drug treatment worldwide.

Globally, in 2010 between 153 million and 300 million people aged 15-64 had used a banned substance. The estimated 15.5 million-38.6 million problem drug users including those with drug dependence and drug-use disorders remain a particular concern. It is also recognised that there were around 9,000 and 253,000 deaths globally in 2010 as a result of banned drugs, with drug-addiction deaths between 0.5 and 1.3% of all-cause mortality.
