Addiction And Recovery

This is a great video clip of Russell Brand speaking with british government about addiction and recovery. He calls for compassion when dealing with the issue of addiction, and he argues that this should not be a criminal matter, but instead a matter of health. He also calls for abstinence-based recovery, even addressing the issue of methadone. Russell argues that methadone should not be used for maintenance, but instead used as a reduction treatment, reducing the addict's dose until he can become abstinent.
