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

See on Scoop.itDrugs, Society, Human Rights & Justice

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: Stigma & Discrimination’ given at the New Zealand Drug Symposium ‘Through the Maze: Making Treatment Better’ 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.
