If you become a victim of identity theft, how hard is the problem to fix?

I just ordered my Credit score, but I think someone stole my SSN and used it to steal my identity. How hard is the problem to fix? Keep in mind I’m 18 and have a blank credit slate.
I know the credit takes years to build up again, but I’m fine with that. What I’m really worried is if I get a large debt, will I have to pay a lot to fix it?
