Bobbi Kristina Brown, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, grown up girl of addiction?
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. assert that family history of genetics is the single most common indicator of risk for future alcohol and drug abuse. Specifically, our health is the result of the interaction between genes and the environment. A good example is the widely accepted notion that the risk of high blood pressure or heart disease is not a result of nature vs. nurture but nature and nurture. In other words, diet, stress, and exercise are environmental factors for developing high blood pressure, but when a genetic predisposition is also present in the family then the risk increases dramatically.
The struggle with addiction affects millions; the legacy of addiction impacts multiple generations of families thereby exposing billions to the risk of compulsive behaviors with drugs and alcohol.
