Imagery and drug addiction services

The Sunday NY Times (4 May 2014) included an article entitled ‘Heroin’s new hometown: On Staten Island, rising tide of heroin takes hold.’ It is a sad and difficult article about the awful effects of addiction on: those who are addicted, their family and friends, as well as their particular communities and society overall.  It is worth studying from a Social Role Valorization (SRV) perspective on many levels, including in relation to the responses from human service agencies as described in the article.

One quote has relevance to the theme of imagery  in Social Role Valorization, in particular the elements of service setting location and activity:

“Some parents have taken to sending their children for treatment in Brooklyn, in part to avoid the glare of those who would recognize them at facilities on Staten Island.”
