Is there anything that increases a person's risk of becoming an addict?

There are some aspects of life that will increase a person's risk of becoming an addict, and commonly this includes un-handled emotional problems or painful events in an individual's life. A traumatic incident will cause a significant amount of emotional pain that will continue to build over the time the issues are not addressed by professional therapists or counselors. Unfortunately, drugs and alcohol offer a temporary escape from the pain or trauma and because of this, a person can easily develop an addiction to these substances.
