Approaches to working with Individuals and groups who experience addiction are ever evolving, and generally depend on the beliefs and evidence identified within a given culture or larger society. In the Western world, services that provide support differ, and are often outcome led to meet financially commissioned expectations whereby service user needs can often be missed.
Similarly, medical services and community projects tend to view treatment in a rigid manner leading to the uniqueness of the individual often being discounted to a ‘one size fits all’ model.
It can be said that we are moving away from a model of genetic determinism to begin to understand and explore more the relationship between addiction and the experience of stress and trauma in early development. Issues around Intersectionality, socially constructed identities, and Systemic Violence are still yet to be fully understood in relation to the development of addictive behaviours.
