PDF - Ethical eye - Drug addiction (2005)
Can a drug addict be forced to seek treatment? Should preventive screening be made systematic, particularly in the workplace? Do some information and education policies not have the effect of legitimising, or even trivialising, drug use? Is the financial cost of treatment justified in the light of society's other needs?These are some of the questions addressed in this work on drug addiction and the use of illicit drugs. This phenomenon, which is affecting people at an ever-younger age, is now an important public policy issue in Europe.
