Launch of Habits: Remaking Addiction
A new book on addiction co-authored by NDRI’s Suzanne Fraser and David Moore - along with ANU’s Helen Keane - was launched on Friday 18 July. Held as part of a research engagement day for NDRI’s Social Studies of Addiction Concepts Program, the event celebrated the release of Habits: Remaking Addiction (2014, Palgrave Macmillan). Following an introduction from Dr Kylie Valentine from UNSW’s Social Policy Research Centre, the book was formally launched by distinguished scholar Professor Robin Room, Director of the Centre for Alcohol Policy Research at Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre and Professor of Alcohol Policy Research in the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne. Following Professor Room’s remarks, Helen Keane read two passages from the book and David Moore acknowledged the support and assistance of number of key people and institutions in the writing of the book.
