Article | Advocating Positive Change...
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Under the banner, "The Law Must Recognize a Leading Fact: Medical Not Penal Treatment Reforms the Drunkard," the Keeley League, a national patient mutual aid society that combined advocacy with support was founded in 1891 but met only through 1892. How sad that more than a century later our jails and prisons are filled predominantly with persons with substance abuse and often co-occurring psychiatric disorders!

Stanton Peele has been investigating, thinking, and writing about addiction since 1969. His first bombshell book, Love and Addiction, appeared in 1975. Its experiential and environmental approach to addiction revolutionized thinking on the subject by indicating that addiction is not limited to narcotics, or to drugs at all, and that addiction is a pattern of behavior and experience which is best understood by examining an individual's relationship with his/her world. This is a distinctly nonmedical approach. It views addiction as a general pattern of behavior that nearly everyone experiences in varying degrees at one time or another.
