• Envisioning Addiction free Society

    Addiction is a chronic, relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences. Addiction is like other diseases, such as heart disease. Both disrupt the normal, healthy functioning of the underlying organ, have serious harmful consequences, and are preventable & treatable. The influence of the home environment, especially during childhood, is a very important factor. Parents or the family members who abuse alcohol or drugs or who engage in criminal behavior, can increase children’s risks of developing their own drug problems.

    Why Addiction free society?

    So how do we build an addiction-free society? We certainly can’t accomplish it with legal means—all kinds of attempts at prohibition have repeatedly failed. On the other side of that equation, societies that have legalized or decriminalized the use of drugs and alcohol have not eliminated or reduced their crime rates. We can’t accomplish it with a “war on drugs,” either. The strategy focuses on reducing the supply of illegal drugs using interdiction, eradication and crop diversification. Even though we’ve spent billions. In fact, even when supply-side strategies have managed to temporarily reduce the flow of drugs, at places increasing scarcity makes the prices of the remaining drugs rise which incentivize even more drug smuggling and production by making it more profitable.
