Addiction Stigmas

by Lily P. Class of 2021

Effects of addiction stigmas on those dealing with addiction and their access to effective treatment.

by Lily P. Class of 2021

My capstone project looks at varying addiction stigmas, specifically in the US, China, and Switzerland. By looking at the historical context of these current-day stigmas, such as seeing how the Opium Wars in China may affect contemporary perspectives, I am working to see how these stigmas may have arisen and how they affect individuals dealing with addiction today, along with different countries’ approaches to addiction treatment.
