Abstract

This study examined Alexander's Dislocation Theory of Addiction, which suggests that the isolating nature of free market forces may lead to increases in addiction rates during periods of economic downturn. This was achieved by analysing the experience of New Jersey during the financial crash of the early 21st century.
