Abstract

Substance use, misuse and addiction has plagued humankind for
centuries [1]. In simple terms, addiction can be described as a disease
of the brain that involves compulsive use of substances in spite of
harmful consequences.
During the 18th century through today, various methods, some
more effective than others, have been used to curtail addiction and its
impact including governmental regulation, institutionalization of
addicted persons, temperance and communal recovery, self-help
groups, pharmacotherapy, and behavioral interventions [1,2]. Only
through the application of scientific principles can societies develop
and test models of interventions for substance misuse. However, it is
not enough to conduct sound research to improve lives; rather, these
works must be disseminated and available, without limitation, to a
wide readership across the globe. This is the goal of The Journal of
Addiction Research and Therapy.
