Having worked in the Behavioral Health field for over two decades this article is the most insightful that I've read when it comes to working with Black Americans. It's in the last paragraph, "We often miss the intersection of substance use with other social determinants of health by favoring instrumental unidimensional biological approaches to prevention, treatment, and recovery. Diversity, equity, and inclusion fail without this important context" where I believe the hope lies. It's past time and we can do better.
