Society’s Chemical Noose: A Look at Substance Abuse and Suicide [Infographic]


Every year, one million deaths occur due to suicide. That figure results in one suicide every fifteen minutes. What’s worse is that many reported cases of suicide are associated with substance abuse and addiction.

Don’t Become a Statistic

It’s estimated that 25 percent of U.S. suicide victims are legally drunk when they commit suicide. Additionally, 40 percent of treatment-seeking alcoholics report attempting suicide at one point in their lifetime. This is an unfortunate truth. Many addicts are aware of the depression that comes along with battling addiction. However, with proper care and treatment, the tragedy of suicide can be prevented.
