Exploring Social Justice for Vulnerable Populations: The Face of the Person with an Addiction. The McGinley-Rice Symposium on Justice for Vulnerable Populations is a unique scholarly forum for nurses and other health care professionals to address issues of social justice in health care. Organized annually by the holder of the Jacques Laval Endowed Chair in Justice for Vulnerable Populations at the Duquesne University School of Nursing, the McGinley-Rice Symposium is an expression of the mission of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, the Catholic missionary order that founded Duquesne and assists needy and marginalized persons throughout the world. Addiction is a significant public health epidemic in the United States. Drug overdose was the leading cause of accidental death during 2014. During that year, over 47,000 persons died from misuse of prescription pain medicine; 10,574 persons died from heroin overdoses. These gripping statistics reveal that although opioid addiction affects persons of different ages, races, ethnicities and genders, adolescents and women are at greater risk. Characterized by drug seeking behavior and compulsive use, relapses are common. Because addiction still carries a social stigma, symptoms of addiction are often denied and concealed. Only about 10 percent of persons with addiction to drugs receives specialty treatment. Addiction is now recognized as a disease of the brain that can be prevented and treated. The McGinley-Rice Symposium looks into the face of the person with an addiction seeking to see the world through her or his eyes
