Description
 
Throughout much of the last century, people addicted to drugs were thought to be morally flawed and lacking in willpower. Society's responses to drug abuse were to treat it as a moral failing rather than a health problem, which led to an emphasis on punitive rather than preventative actions. Today, we know that drug addiction is a disease that affects both brain and behavior.
