"Family studies that include identical twins, fraternal twins, adoptees, and siblings suggest that as much as half of a person's risk of becoming addicted to nicotine, alcohol, or other drugs depends on his or her genetic makeup"

“The past few years have seen remarkable progress in our understanding of the genetics, and therefore the biology, of substance use and abuse.”

“Genetics of substance use disorders in the era of big data” - Nature Reviews Genetics

Based on the latest research.
“Twin resemblance for sedative, stimulant, cocaine, and opiate use, however, was caused solely by genetic factors. With 2 exceptions (cocaine abuse and stimulant dependence), twin resemblance for heavy use, abuse, and dependence resulted from only genetic factors, with heritability of liability usually ranging from 60% to 80%.”

“Understanding the biology of human responses to opioids may lead to effective preventive strategies and treatments to reduce [opioid dependence] and its harmful consequences. Human genetic research has the potential to dissect the basis of inter-individual variability in the response to opioid exposure (i.e., whether an individual develops dependence on opioids).”

Alcohol dependence (AD) is moderately heritable (49% by a recent meta-analysis) and numerous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have aimed to identify loci contributing to this genetic variance … According to one study, common SNPs are responsible for as much as 30% of the variance in AD … Variants in the genes responsible for alcohol metabolism, especially ADH1B and ALDH2, have been strongly implicated.”
