Introduction 7 advances in the treatment of addiction are translated into clinical practice in ways that minimise harms and maximise benefits.
We discuss the possible implications of neuroscience research for drug and addiction policy in greater detail in Chapter 14. A deterministic account of addiction is not unique to genetics and neuroscience; similarly deterministic roles could be attributed to social factors that lead to drug use or make some more vulnerable to addiction, such as socioeconomic background, or early adolescent exposure to parental addiction. , 2008). Appeals to ‘faulty genes’ and ‘chemical imbalances’ also provide a more mechanistic or proximal, and thereby more plausible, account of addiction.
