The reason that people are drawn into substance abuse is because it provides an escape rather than a confrontation with their personal problems.

A.The reason that people are drawn into substance abuse is because it provides an escape rather than a confrontation with

The reason ....... is because it.....wrong construction.

B.The reason that people are drawn into substance abuse is that it provides an escape rather than a confrontation with

The reason.......is that it provides.....Correct. Here "it"modifies the closest noun "substance abuse".

C.The reason that people are drawn into substance abuse is that it provides an escape rather than to confront

"an escape" (noun phrase) is not parallel to "to confront" (infinitive).

D.People are drawn into substance abuse because they escape rather than a confrontation with

Intended meaning is substance abuse provides escape rather than confrontation.

Also, "they escape" (clause) is not parallel to "a confrontation" (noun phrase)

E.People are drawn into substance abuse because it provides an escape rather than confronting

"an escape" is not parallel to "confronting" .
