As most Americans know, substance abuse—especially of alcohol, tobacco, stimulants, hallucinogens, and opioids—is a prevalent problem in the United States (SAMHSA, 2015). According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), substance abuse leads to many negative consequences, such as physical and mental health problems and inability to function normally in daily life (2015). Not only does substance abuse affect users and their families in negative ways, but the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) notes that “abuse of tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs is costly to our nation, exacting more than $740 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity, and healthcare” (NIDA, 2010-2013).

To help combat substance abuse and reduce the extreme negative impacts on users, their families, and society at large, many organizations offer generous grants to healthcare entities, non-profits, and schools willing to work toward substance abuse prevention and treatment.

By the time they are seniors, almost 70% of high school students will have tried alcohol, half will have taken an illegal drug, nearly 40% will have smoked a cigarette, and more than 20% will have used a prescription drug for a nonmedical purpose, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. In adults, illicit drug use is also on the rise.
