Substance Misuse Dilemmas
By Colin J. Sanders
This article discusses the social problem of substance misuse in terms of sociocultural historical antecedents contributing to contexts within which substance misuse may arise. The transcript of a conversation with “Laurie” situates aspects of his experience relative to the social milieu within which he struggles to exist.
This chapter provides curious readers with practice questions, and exercises, for further reference into questioning assumptions that preface our work, and explorations into alternate understandings of the meanings we ascribe to our own experience, and the experiences of those struggling with dilemmas.
