This paper provides an overview of disability and addiction and a detailed analysis of their discourses, including those informed by social justice and harm reduction perspectives. It suggests a phenomenological critique of these literatures and then offers some thoughts on how a phenomenological perspective may inform a different and perhaps, more egalitarian¬†understanding of addictive behaviours and how our responses may be altered of we acknowledge and incorporate the lifeworlds of those currently labeled¬†“addicts.” The paper has been published in the Polish Journal of Disability and Rehabilitation, No. 4 (2019), pp. 40-52.¬†
