In brief: See below
I see lots of questions with people asking if there race or ethnicity increases there alcohol or drug addiction risk.
Best answer is to variable to say. Family history is a much better predictor of addiction risk, parents, siblings, grandparents aunts and uncles. And your own health history, history of mental illness, trauma, etc.
