Although the impacts on society are considerable - on our health systems resources- on our legal and social welfare programs- on employers, friends, neighbours and family- and on the individual him or herself - remarkably little has been written about this widespread problem in the popular media. There is also inadequate awareness and training within the health, legal and social welfare systems.The author, Robert B. Pereira, MD, has a diploma in Addiction Medicine from the American Board of Addiction Medicine, and is accredited by the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine. Dr. Pereira practices medicine in Surrey and downtown Vancouver, specializing in the treatment of DD clients.
