A stable home may not be enough to help a child who's become addicted to drugs or alcohol.
A Duke University study monitored children until they were age 30. Children from stable homes who began drug use before they were age 15 were just as likely as children from a bad home to continue to abuse drugs and suffer the consequences as an adult.
Early drug prevention typically targets at-risk youth - those from abusive or substance-abusing homes. But the new study shows that no child should be left behind when it comes to drug prevention.
