Addiction is a growing problem within the South Asians community. With that in mind, there is still some resistance to seek help from addiction centres. Is it due to the stigma attached to it? Host, Navjot Dhillon speaks to Addiction Specialist, Jyoti Gill about the misinformation and lack of knowledge by addicts to ask for assistance. Gill explains how the community can shift its “view” of addiction from a “moral model” to that of a “medical model”.
