While traditional remedies and tactics will remain useful, more nuanced approaches may enhance a treatment facility’s repertoire and, more importantly, improve patient outcomes.

Bill White’s Reflections on Eagleville Hospital’s 50th Anniversary in Addiction Treatment
No addictions field existed in the early 1970s. There was an “alcoholism field” and a “drug abuse field,” each viewing the other with considerable suspicion and condescension.
