  5. Does addiction run in the family?
Asked: 2018-04-17 11:30:11
Most websites and even family members have told me that addiction is genetic and runs in the family, I am looking for different/outside opinions on the matter.

Strangely yes addiction does run in the family.. Meaning you have a higher chance of developing the disease is someone in your family has it.
