  • Drugs and Social Context Social Perspectives on the Use of Alcohol and Other Drugs

    Drugs and Social Context Social Perspectives on the Use of Alcohol and Other Drugs

    Publicado el 25/07/18

    This book goes beyond the traditional approaches to drug use and discusses the issue from a societal perspective, integrating contributions from different disciplines such as psychology, public health, anthropology, law, public policies and sociology to address specifically the social aspects of the phenomenon. Given its complexity, drug use demands a multidisciplinary approach from many different perspectives, but despite the vast literature about the topic, the majority of the books are restricted either to a purely medical perspective (focused mainly on treatment techniques) or to a criminological perspective (focused mainly on drug trafficking and organized crime).

  • Drug Courts in the Americas: A report by the Drugs, Security and Democracy Program

    Drug Courts in the Americas: A report by the Drugs, Security and Democracy Program

    Publicado el 25/03/18

    Drug courts in the United States are presented as an alternative to incarceration for people arrested for minor drug offenses where drug use is considered an underlying cause of the crime, thus theoretically serving as a tool for reducing prison and jail populations. The United States has nearly 30 years of experience with these courts, which have spread to all 50 states as well as US territories. Many countries have looked to the US experience with drug courts as a model to be adopted. While the United States drug court model has been embraced by other countries around the world, perhaps the most organized efforts to expand this policy are those currently underway in Latin America and the Caribbean.

  • Dependencias, raíces ante la incertidumbre

    Dependencias, raíces ante la incertidumbre

    Publicado el 25/07/18

    ¿Qué rasgos personales y de nuestra sociedad promueven el desarrollo de adicciones y qué estrategias las enfrentan? 

    Como personas y como sociedad, en la actualidad hemos perdido las certezas. Esto puede provocar una sensación de mayor libertad de elección, pero también remite a altos niveles de incertidumbre. En efecto, la falta de límites, definiciones o valores generalizados provoca inseguridad y nos hace buscar marcos de pertenencia que nos definan ante nosotros mismos y los demás. Entre los procesos de búsqueda de raíces destacan las dependencias. Así, se depende del consumo de algo, de la reiteración de un comportamiento o de un marco de pensamiento que pasan a ser el nombre y apellido, el trabajo de tiempo completo y la fuente única de gratificaciones y pesadillas con las cuales identificarse. Cuanto más se interne en la dependencia, mayores dificultades se presentarán para encontrar otros caminos, desarrollar otras raíces que eviten los resultados adversos para sí y su entorno.
