Addiction & Recovery
Substance use disorders and addiction are a leading cause of death and disability across the globe; the physical, psychological, and social effects of substance use disorders affect millions of people and their families. Despite this crisis, addictions continue to be misunderstood and stigmatized, while individuals with addiction continue to be marginalized and criminalized.
We explore ethical questions related moral responsibility and addiction, views on medication-assisted treatments, criminal justice and addiction, and how conceptual and ethical confusion about addiction motivate poor policy choices.
