We need to talk about…The purpose of drug treatment


Depressing though all of this may be, it is of value because it perfectly illustrates a fundamental flaw in drug treatment and policy that really does need commenting on, because it’s the root cause in much misunderstanding. It’s this – drug treatment is not for drug users, rather it is an attempt to protect society from drug users. I appreciate some readers might be wincing or exhibiting anger at this point, but hear me out.
