Addiction Conference 2021

Location: Online

Lives and livelihoods in Africa are lost every day to a medical disorder of which the true extent and severity is unknown.

Addiction needs to be seen for what it is. Not as a weakness. Not as a lack of character. Not as something that needs to be punished.

Substance use disorder (SUD) is a diagnosable, treatable medical disorder and no country or company can afford to lose any more resources to ineffective, uncoordinated addiction treatment protocols.
