      Event Description:
      What IF We Went Beyond A Disease Model of Addiction? Dr. Sally Satel

      To call addiction a disease, Dr. Sally Satel believes we must ask what kind of disease it is. Unless we challenge a medicalized vision of addiction, she argues, we will be hampered in understanding the roots of the opioid crisis and the implementation of remedies. A resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a staff psychiatrist at a methadone clinic in Washington, D.C., Satel has testified before Congress on veterans issues, mental health policy, drug courts and health disparities.
