    The last article in our newspaper on addiction is on children of addicts and contains a lot of good information, much of what we have all been saying on this forum. If you want to read it please google the Plain Dealer and search for Children of alcoholics face increased addiction risk, other health problems.

    The genetic factor of addiction is so prevalent and I was interested to read they have done studies of children born to addicts who are adopted by a family with no history of addiction and they become alcoholics. That is exactly what we have found in our family, having no alcohol or drug problems and adopting our difficult child knowing her history included alcoholism and drug use.
