Aruna Bezawada Venkat (NALSAR University of Law) has posted Drug Abuse: Vulnerability or Inevitability? (International Journal of Social Science & Interdisciplinary Research, IJSSIR, Vol3, (5), May 2014) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Drug Abuse is a serious problem worldwide. This article elaborates Drug Laws, National Policy, Drug abuse-narcotics to pharmaceuticals, World Drug Report 2013, Drug abuse: A Family Matter, Education and Environment, Variant Protein and Drug Abuse. This would mean that we would need to work towards a collaborative framework where individuals from health care systems, legal spheres, social assistance collectives and educational organizations come together to discuss and implement some of the necessary mechanisms to effectively help those with problematic substance addictions. The collaborative framework would include contributions from experts, academics, policy makers, researchers and civil society. Therefore, drug abuse should be tackled through a multi-disciplinary approach for best and long lasting results.
