Why Do People Become Addicted to Drugs? – The Rogue Elephant

the rogue elephantThis is the question posed in this presentation.  Why do people become addicted to drugs when others can take drugs and avoid the addiction?  Intervention Services Founders Kevin and David Lee were both raised by the same parents, both experimented with drugs and alcohol in the same frequency and amount, yet only one became addicted.

“The Rogue Elephant” is a presentation delivered by our Founder, David Lee, to the Cedar Lake Key Club during their annual “Night out in a box” benefit for the homeless where teenagers spend an evening living in a cardboard box to better understand the needs of the homeless.
