Alexis Jones's insight:

Part of the reason of why drugs are on the rise, is because of their increase use in teenagers.  What's shocking about these particular studies is the age at which these young people began using drugs, the youngest age being 11.  The teenagers in this documentary have shocking stories.  Amy was put into prostitution by her parents at age 12.  Clint moved from foster home to foster home all throughout his child hood and was kicked at at 16, expected to fend for himself.  As for Cornelius, drug addiction ran in his family, his parents were heroin addicts, and Andrew--well he was always a mystery.  This video conveys the effect that personal pressures have on an individual's--particularly teens'--drug use.

Alexis Jones's insight:

It's very interesting to view drug addiction as a "crippling disease," but once you really think about it, you realize that this is perhaps the only way to describe it to a non-addict. But it also gives tips on how not to view an addict and how not to cast judgement to them because after all, they are still human.  The article mentioned something that I thought was interesting. To some addicts, they are just self-medicating their own depression.
