She stressed that addiction is a disease, not simply a weakness, and that people from all backgrounds can become addicts. She mentioned how freely drugs are available in suburban neighbourhoods and not merely in dark alleys.

Yvonne Jawitz of WIZO Forum introduced clinical psychologist Serenne Kaplan, who spoke about the meaning of addiction. She spoke of how when the urge is too strong to control, even if you know that it is causing harm, how quickly it can take over a person’s life.

She then discussed the many kinds of addictions affecting society today, from screen addiction, to sex, to shopping, to alcohol and drugs, to clean eating and exercise, and many more.
