“The third annual American Family Survey, released today, reveals that 5 percent of adults say they’re addicted to opioids or heroin, 6 percent claim an alcohol addiction and 4 percent say they’re hooked on marijuana. The number who report addictions in their families is more than twice that: 12 percent say there is an opioid addiction in their family, while for alcohol and marijuana the percentages are 15 and 10, respectively.
The American Family Survey, conducted by YouGov for the Deseret News and the BYU Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, is a nationally representative poll of more than 3,000 adults. The findings were released Thursday in Washington, D.C.”
