My son is growing up fast, Can a child be too young to develop problems with drug addiction and alcoholism?

Danny, There seems to be no minimum age requirement for a person or child alike to develop the disease of alcoholism and/or drug addiction.
In recent years there has been a trend in which younger and younger people have begun to experiment with alcohol and drugs. Research now shows that youth who begin to use or drink early in life have higher chances of becoming dependent and addicted. Fact is, drug addiction or alcoholism do not discriminate and do affect people across all backgrounds, ages and classes.
