should we help drug users?
Debate Rounds (1)
Also note that addiction can affect potentially anyone, including those who:
Have no apparent genetic predisposition for addiction or alcoholism
Have very little environmental risk
Have no moral shortcomings or laziness about them
Even if you do not believe in the disease model, learning more about how it works is a necessary foundation in learning about how you can potentially help a struggling addict or alcoholic. If you want to know how to help alcoholics then you need to learn about the condition.
Services are already in place for these instances, it is up to the person themselves to decide whether they want to use it or not, that is not anybody else's problem but the person with the addiction to drugs. I don't see why others should get themselves involved with drug users, it was their choice as to become a drug user and if it was peer pressure that forced them to do it, they can still make a choice to stop and get help and if they can't obviously they are not cut-out for the real world.
