The Value of Drug Addiction Research  

In this presentation, I discuss strategies for dealing with drug addiction. More specifically strategies related to supply and demand. Our society has focused on trying to affect supply, which would increase cost and consequently decrease demand. The other side of the economic equation is to try to deal directly with decreasing demand. The main message is that demand reduction is a much better strategy for the drug abuser AND for society and the tax payers. Much more research, including research with animal subjects, is needed to development individualized treatment strategies to combat drug addiction.
