Addiction is a common problem that can affect anyone from any background. It impacts on everything from crime and society to hospital emergencies and health services. But is addiction a disease of the brain and cause of illness, or a moral and criminal justice issue?  

 Dr Gail Critchlow is an addiction psychiatrist with a background in basic neurosciences. She has also spent years working with drug using offenders both in the community and in prisons. She will look at addiction and the addicted life from many aspects, from brain and biology to society. Is addiction a disease? You decide. 

 This presentation contains frank information and images about drug taking and criminal activity. It is suitable for 13+. Parental guidance and support for attendance would be required for children or young adults from 13-18.
