Drug addiction causes health problems, family problems and money problems.
Drug addiction causes health, family and money problems.

Can I avoid the repetition of the word "problem" by using the second sentence?

    The second sentence is better in ordinary writing. Repetition is not wrong, and you might repeat words for emphasis, but we usually avoid it where possible.
