The Globalization of Addiction

A Study in Poverty of the Spirit

Bruce Alexander

  • Presents a powerful, original, and controversial argument for rethinking addiction and how we treat it.
  • Highlights the flaws in our current thinking, investigates why we persist with treatments that don't work, and calls for consideration of the social causes rather than just individual causes.
