Drug and alcohol addiction is very different for teens and adults. When you are a teen, you don't really know about the addiction, you got peer pressured into it, or you don't really know why you are addicted and you think its just fun. On the other hand, adult may not be as susceptible to addiction. Their maturity could help prevent extreme addictions.
