Considerable attention is given to addressing the physical and psychological aspects of drug dependence – some suggest it’s a disease called ‘addiction’.
This lecture asserts 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.
