Dr. Lee strives to educate others to see that drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by drug seeking and use that is compulsive, or difficult to control, despite harmful consequences. She believes that drug addiction is treatable and can be successfully managed. For that reason, education and outreach are keys in helping people understand the possible risks of drug use and that family members, the community and health care providers have crucial roles in educating individuals in an effort to prevent drug use and addiction.
