...Medicalisation of Addiction? Addiction as a disease model?... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:31, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Article is due for a rewrite. The areas designated as medicalized in medical sociology are nearly endless, but I think addiction should be included in a revised version. It will be a couple of weeks before I can start in on this article properly. Any help would be welcome. FiachraByrne 01:15, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I think there may be scope for distinguishing narrow definition from broader implication. The narrow definition offered (quantifying social, cultural or other non-medical phenomena with diagnoses) almost covers the topic. Is there s a broader sense in which medicalization applies at a conceptual or institutional level . Does enterprise value-add their products by using the prefix medical to boost sales? Is there a critical sense in which medicalization applies to imperialism by the profession? Tradimus (talk) 04:54, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
