Substance abuse and alcoholism are popular tropes in fanworks. Fanfiction often addresses the addicted character's struggle to come to terms with their addiction with the help of another character. Sometimes the second character becomes a romantic partner (and it can be a way of getting canonically unlikely pairings together), but plenty of gen friendship stories exist. Stories sometimes feature Alcoholics Anonymous or similar organisations and the sponsor system.

In Canon

Numerous popular canons feature recreational drug use or alcoholism.
