Socio-economic deprivation is associated with drug dependence, but not drug use (von Sydow, et al., 2002).

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

Socio-economic deprivation is associated with drug dependence, but not drug use (von Sydow, et al., 2002). It is also clear that countries with a lower level of social inequality and greater social cohesion have smaller populations of problem drug users per head of population. Thus, addressing poverty and social inequality over the long term will have a significant impact on levels of problem drug use.
