Addiction: A Community Issue

Srini Pillay

Overview

Addictions are a perennial problem. Since the dawn of humanity, we have been tempted to indulge in things that change the state of our minds or bodies. The substances upon which humans base addiction may have changed, but the form of addiction has always been the same.

Srini Pillay is a distinguished psychiatrist and experienced brain imaging analyst. He offers a fresh approach to the problem of addiction. In Addiction: A Community Issue, he tries to go further than brain imaging methodology, approaching addiction from the viewpoint of social psychiatry.

The issue of addiction is more important than most 'breaking news' stories that we see daily on TV. Pillay strives to show us just how ever present and pervasive substance abuse is, and how it undermines society from its foundations.

"Having an addiction was considered a personal problem...many experts spoke about it as brain disease that we can do nothing about. These days this view is changing. People are actually realizing that we don't exist in isolation."
