An Anatomy of Substance Dependence

The video presents some facts from the book that show how these two individuals made great contributions to the fields of psychology and surgery, respectively, although they were both, at one time, dependent on cocaine (Bowser, 2011).

Please notice how people can still make very important contributions to society while being substance dependent. Also, notice how in the case of these two individuals, they were not incarcerated, character “assassinated” or demonized by the society. This video is also evidence that history is still repeating itself today with the marketing of new drugs that are supposed to be the next so-called “miracle drug.” Unfortunately, many of these “miracle drugs” are still subsequently discredited because of the harmful effects that they produce.
