Concerning the 'Addiction' part. It is very important that medical doctors of the future get familiar with the problems of addiction they will encounter in their patients. The recognition by a physician of symptoms which can be an indication of addiction can possibly result in an intervention at an earlier stage. Besides of this it is also important that medical doctors see people who are addicted as normal people with a(n) (addiction) problem. This will result in more successful treatments.
