The director of the Centre for Social Justice has argued that poorer people are unable to get adequate treatment to tackle addictions. Christian Guy said:
Addiction rips into families, makes communities less safe and entrenches poverty.
For years full recovery has been the preserve of the wealthy – closed off to the poorest people and to those with problems who need to rely on a public system. We want to break this injustice wide open.
