Deconstructing Addiction and Reclaiming Joy— The Deconstructing Addiction League


This paper consists of extracts from discussions on the Deconstructing Addiction League E-list. It includes correspondence between members, theoretical and practical considerations, celebrations, a virtual interview and definitional ceremony, as well as the first story in what is hoped to become an archive of practices of joy and connection – free from substances. This collection also demonstrates the ethic of community that is central to the League’s work.
