I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to understand that Addiction is a prevalent and almost overwhelming issue. And in listening to literally hundreds of people discuss Addiction, I believe that no other single issue facing us causes as much negative emotion as does Addiction.
The thing for me is that, though I do talk to a lot of people about Addiction, I don’t have any hard evidence about what people believe and perceive about either substance abuse or addiction. Therefore, I put together a brief ten (10) question survey that I will run for around two (2) weeks through which I hope to gain, at minimum, one hundred (100) responses such that I can gauge what perceptions exist about substance abuse and/or addiction. I’ve called it the The Substance Abuse & Addiction Perception Survey.
The survey does not collecting any demographic information; nor does it collect any personal contact information. Really, I just want to gather information in an attempt to understand what the general population thinks about substance abuse and/or addiction such that I can then develop better educational materials that can improve/enhance substance abuse and addiction treatment.
Therefore, please take a few minutes to answer the questions within the survey. By doing so, you will become part of the solution instead of allowing the problems that substance abuse and/or addiction present to persist. Also, once you’ve completed the survey, please share this post as the more data I have, the better the understanding becomes. I’ll update about the progress of the survey as the time period goes on and will publish the findings a few days after I close the survey.
Thank you for being an active piece of a solution puzzle! The survey (please remember to click the “Submit” button once you’ve responded to all the questions):
