Particular sociocultural subgroups have increased risk for addictive disorders, although virtually anyone can have such a disorder.
Our national posture in the United States has focused on avoiding our own sociocultural milieu as a contributor to addiction.
Indead, we have focused primarily on clinical interventions for addicted persons and reducing drug production and commerce outside of our national boundaries.
Time has shown these responses to be inadequate of themselves.
We must address our own sociocultural milieu if we wish to reduce our high rates of addiction.
