Julian Buchanan: Barriers to Recovery: Stigma, Discrimination & Exclusion

Via Scoop.itDrugs, Society and Human Rights

Considerable attention is given to addressing the physical and psychological aspects of drug dependence – some suggest it’s a disease called ‘addiction’.   This paper entitled ‘Barriers to Recovery’ given at the New Zealand Drug Symposium ‘Through the Maze: Making Treatment Better’ http://www.drugfoundation.org.nz/through-the-maze argues that the social context is much overlooked, and illustrates how problem drug use is to a large extent a social construct, exacerbated by criminalisation, exclusion, stigma and discrimination.   If you want to follow the PREZI Slide Presentation used in the lecture (can also be copied and used):
