Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist
Drugs have been with us since the beginning. We've never truly had them under our control. Addictive substances are a source of both paradoxes and conflicts. In conjunction with these substances, we're left with many questions and it's not always easy to find answers.
The dilemmas and ethics questions connected to drugs leave an impact on the individual, society and how they operate. Does a positive recourse or direction exist that we could take? Michal Miovský will present his point of view on the matter.
