Societal Conflict and the Stigma of People with Addiction delves into society’s stance on those afflicted with addiction and how to provide help and support for people who suffer from it. The prevailing approach towards limiting addiction has been through inciting fear, sowing prejudice, and criminalizing individuals with it; labeling them as weak willed ‘addicts’. This perception has served only to harm those who are in desperate need of rehabilitation and treatment by instead punishing and ostracizing them from their families and communities.
