Historically, addiction was treated as a personal failure. It’s often associated with a lack of faith or fortitude, an assumption that comes with lasting effects. Even the early 20th century attempts to understand addiction recovery studied the condition from a perspective of superiority over their subjects. It led researchers to tie the condition to defective genes with little more than family history and the pseudoscience of eugenics to support their hypothesis. The result is that those who suffer addiction now hold the weight of those assumptions to the point where they cease to be an individual in the eyes of society.
