About how much does drug abuse in the US cost each year?
Answer . There will never be a correct percentage on this one, because there are so many abused women who feel trapped in their own homes and also in their own minds and it…'s never reported. When a woman is abused she feels that she has no control and her abuser has made her feel stupid and that she will never make it in the outside world. The abused woman will believe this with all her heart, feel trapped and afraid that she cannot provide for herself (or if she has children) and doesn't trust the legal system. She knows if she fails to get protection the abuse could get worse. \n. \nEach woman has to try and become free of their abuser, but each individual has a different time of moving on their decisions and some are so abused they never do find that little hole they feel they can squeeze through and get away from their abuser.\n. \nAbuse happens to all women of all races, ages, poor, middle class or wealthy. \n. \nIf you are an abused woman, don't give up! Believe with all your heart that there is help for you and no woman, child (or even some men) should ever have to put up with constant verbal or physical abuse. You are your own person, so fight with all your might and gain the freedom you so deserve! Pick up that phone and call Mental Health and get into the Women's Abuse Centre. There are some wonderful people there and you are safe at these Centres.\n. \nGod Bless\nMarcy

About 2-5 million people die from drug each year all over the world.
hard to say. not all cases of abuse are documented or reported. There is no national database that has a number. Local shelters will have the number for the animals that they …see, but other than that, there is no way to tell.
One every 18 seconds. see links below
3 times as many people die each year from this than illegal drugs.

Prisons cost tax payers $32 billion a year in 2005, which each inmate costing $22 thousands a year. An individual sentenced to a life term averages $1.5million in cost. States… are spending more money on prisons than education. Over the course of two decades, the amount of money spent on prisons was increased by 57% while that spent on elementary and secondary education was increased by only 33%. The average prisoner costs the taxpayers $33,615 a year to imprison. For about $18,000 he could get a college education.
