Addiction in the Brain: Ethically Sound Implementation in Governance

Project Details

Description (abstract)

The A-BRAIN (2018-2021) project concerns the implementation of the Brain Disease Model of Addiction (BDMA) and its possible implications for policy and practice. Seen in a wider perspective the project asks what it means when epistemic dogma starts situating the problems of addiction in the brain. How can this kind of knowledge be used and implemented in the most fruitful, sound and ethical ways? How can societies utilize the valuable parts of these discoveries and how does it change the ways in which we deal with addiction?
